Rafael Perez will take over as Major League Baseball's director of Dominican operations, the league announced today.
From the press release:
"Perez, who previously served as Director of International Operations for the New York Mets, will succeed Jorge Perez-Diaz, MLB's interim Director of Latin American Operations, on November 1st. Perez-Diaz will continue to manage Major League Baseball's legal affairs throughout Latin America."
Perez had been with the Mets since 2005, working most recently under general manager Sandy Alderson, whose previous job had put him in charge of reforming MLB's Dominican operations. Perez has worked for the league office before, serving as MLB's senior manager of Latin American operations from 2002-2005.
The Los Angeles Times also reported that Dodgers assistant farm director Chris Haydock will join MLB "to work on international projects." Haydock had worked with the former Dodgers assistant GM Kim Ng, now MLB's vice president who oversees international operations.
