Breslow spent 4 seasons with the Cubs, first as director of strategic initiatives in 2019, earlier than being promoted to director of pitching in 2020. That very same 12 months, Breslow added particular assistant to Theo Epstein (president of baseball ops) and Jed Hoyer (normal supervisor), respectively, to his titles. In 2021, Breslow was promoted once more, this time to assistant GM.
Throughout that point, Breslow turned the Cubs from a group that relied on free company and trades for beginning pitching right into a ball membership that developed its personal proficient bullpen. And Breslow did most of this whereas working remotely from Newton, Mass.
Due to this fact, he will not need to go very far for his new job, and even higher than that, Breslow is stepping right into a Boston operation that he needs to be pretty aware of. Due to the Pink Sox’s continuity, Breslow will probably be in a room stuffed with acquainted faces, and plenty of of who fondly bear in mind his second stint with the group from 2012 to 2015.
