2013 Mets Front Office and Organizational Moves & Promotions
The Daily News summarized what was a series of Mets organizational moves and promotions that took place during the offseason. Most of these moves flew under the radar, but are certainly worth noting. Many of these moves were made without much fanfare or official announcement, but they are in fact completed.
Two and a half years in, and Sandy Alderson continues to structure his organization which is still sort of a hybrid of new people he brought in and holdovers from the Omar Minaya era. Here is how Andy Martino sorts them out:
- John Ricco, Paul DePodesta and J.P. Ricciardi remain at the top of Alderson’s chain of command; the recent promotions are for the positions directly underneath the four big cheeses. Here are the moves, courtesy of a major league source:
- Dick Scott, who worked with Ricciardi in Toronto and replaced Terry Collins as minor league field coordinator in late 2010, is now director of player development.
- Adam Fisher, a Minaya-era guy who has continued to have a voice in the Alderson regime, was promoted from manager of baseball operations to director of baseball operations.
- Jon Miller, formerly assistant director of minor league operations, was bumped up to director of minor league operations. He essentially replaces Adam Wogan, once brought over from Montreal by Minaya, and let go last winter (Wogan is now a scout for the Red Sox).
- T.J. Barra was the minor league video coordinator, and was promoted to manager of minor league operations/baseball information.
- Ian Levin was promoted from coordinator of amateur scouting to manager of baseball analytics.
So there you have it, folks. Lets have a big hand for your 2013 New York Mets Team…
Behind the scenes team, that is. :-)
