The Boston Red Sox have reportedly decided who their next general manager will be.
In-depth news coverage of the Greater Boston Area.
Just under two months after parting ways with Dave Dombrowski, the Red Sox have settled on Tampa Bay Rays Vice President of Baseball Operations, Chaim Bloom to join their front office as GM.
Joel Sherman of The New York Post was first to break the news and Alex Speier of The Boston Globe confirmed it.
Bloom is regarded as one of the best executives in baseball that didn't have a general manager title. Now, he will have one with the Red Sox.
Bloom, 36, is a Yale graduate and had been with the Rays since starting out as an intern with them in 2005. Our own John Tomase outlined why Bloom emerged as a frontrunner for the Red Sox job shortly after news of the Sox' interest broke.
