Cubs make series of promotions, changes in baseball operations department
(670 The Score) The Cubs on Tuesday announced a series of promotions and changes in their baseball operations department, headlined by Matt Dorey shifting to vice president of player personnel and Jared Banner becoming the vice president of player development.
Dorey is now in his 12th season with the organization and most recently was the vice president of player development. In his new role, he’ll focus more on player evaluation as a whole rather than focusing on the farm system. Dorey joined the Cubs as a national crosschecker in 2012.
Banner was the Cubs’ vice president of special projects in 2021. Prior to that, he had spent two years with the Mets and 11 years with the Red Sox.
In other changes, Andrew Bassett has been elevated to director of pro scouting/special assistant to the president and general manager after spending the past two years as the director of pro scouting.
Garrett Chiado has been named the director of pro analytics, while Chris Jones has been promoted to director of research and development.
