Ned Rice, who previously was assistant director of major league operations, is now director of major league administration. Mike Snyder, who was assistant director of scouting and player development, is now assistant director of player personal. And Bill Wilkes, who was coordinator of baseball operations, is now manager of baseball operations.
"These promotions reflect the significant contributions and commitments Brady, Ned, Mike and Bill have already made to the Orioles organization," Orioles executive VP of baseball operations Dan Duquette said in a statement. "They are valuable members of the baseball operations department, and I feel confident they will continue to excel in their new and expanded roles."
No word yet on how their roles will change, but the shorter titles are expected to save paper in future press releases, confirming the club’s commitment to the environment.
