Will fill role vacated by Jeff Kingston who joined Los Angeles Dodgers In December.
PEORIA, Ariz. — Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto today announced from the Mariners Spring Training camp that the Mariners have promoted Joe Bohringer to Assistant General Manager.
“This is a well-deserved opportunity for Joe, who has been a key part of our group since 2015.” Dipoto said. “He has extensive experience in nearly all facets of baseball operations, adeptly balancing the management of information with the continued professional development of our people.”
Bohringer, who has served as a Special Assistant to the General Manager since Oct. 29, 2015, fills the spot created when Jeff Kingston moved to the Los Angeles Dodgers in December.
Bohringer’s areas of focus will include overseeing the Mariners Analytics Departments and staff, the area of new Player Development Technologies and the researching and vetting of other new technologies in the baseball operations department. He will be responsible for overseeing, delegating, providing quality control and managing the budgets for all of these areas, as well as for Athlete Management and Research & Development. In addition, he will serve as the primary liaison from the front office to all Medical Doctors, Specialists and consultants.
Bohringer is in his 30th season of professional baseball in 2019. In addition to his Special Assistant role with the Mariners, he spent four seasons (2012–2015) as the Chicago Cubs Director of Professional Scouting. He served as a pro scout with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2006–2011) and was an area scouting supervisor for the Mariners from 2002–06, first in California and then in the upper Midwest. Before his career in scouting, he spent three seasons as Senior Manager of Player Development for the Dodgers (1998–2001). Prior to joining the Dodgers, Joe worked with minor league clubs in Buffalo, New York and Ottawa.
Bohringer graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a business degree from MIT’s Sloan School of Management.
Bohringer will work closely with Justin Hollander who was promoted to Assistant General Manager on Nov. 1, 2018. Justin assists Dipoto in all areas of Major League operations (travel, scheduling, budgeting, payroll, roster management, etc.) as well as player procurement, negotiations of Major League contracts, 40-man roster composition and baseball statistical research. He is also the primary liaison to Major League Baseball / Office of the Commissioner.
