The Tigers will hire current Giants general manager Scott Harris to be their next president of baseball operations, sources told MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi on Monday. Neither club has confirmed the news.
Harris is in his third season as the Giants’ GM, having joined the organization in November 2019. In his first two seasons, the Giants posted the third-best winning percentage in the Majors at .613 (136-86).
Harris spent seven years in the Cubs’ front office before joining the Giants, helping build the roster that snapped the club’s 108-year World Series title drought in 2016.
The Tigers parted ways with former vice president and GM Al Avila last month after he had spent 20 years in the organization, temporarily handing baseball operations to VP and assistant GM Sam Menzin.
