New York Mets Name Zack Scott Acting GM

The New York Mets have promoted assistant General Manager Zack Scott to Acting GM. This development comes eight days after firing former General Manager Jared Porter over explicit texts sent to a female reporter. Like Porter, Scott was also hired in December.

MLB.com beat writer Anthony DiComo reported the news along with an official statement from team president Sandy Alderson.

Alderson also went on to say that “[Scott] has been an integral part of our decision-making processes since his arrival. The entire baseball operations staff, including myself, will continue to work collaboratively.”

In addition to his role as assistant GM, Scott was also a finalist for the GM position outright, making this an easy decision. At just 43-years-old, he is already an industry veteran. Scott spent 17 years with the Boston Red Sox, including two as their assistant GM. He brings with him heavy experience working in analytics, scouting and advanced systems development.

Scott has not released an official statement.
