The Red Sox announced Tuesday afternoon they will not hire a general manager and have promoted Eddie Romero to senior vice president/assistant general manager after Mike Hazen left the team for the GM position with the Diamondbacks.
Romero along with senior vice president/assistant general manager, Brian O’Halloran, will both directly report to president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski and assist in all aspects of baseball operations going forward.
This comes after Romero was elevated to the position of vice president for international scouting at the start of last season.
“The Red Sox are very pleased to announce Eddie’s promotion to assistant general manager,” said Dombrowski in a statement. “This is a very talented individual who we think can make a real impact for us with his background in player evaluation and his knowledge of our minor league system. A native Spanish speaker, his ability to communicate with both players and staff is significant, especially in today’s game. We look forward to having Eddie on board to assist our efforts to improve our ball club.”
