Mariners Hire Brewers’ Exec As Their New GM
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have hired Milwaukee Brewers special assistant Jack Zduriencik as their new general manager.
The 57-year-old Zduriencik replaces Bill Bavasi, who was fired in June. He takes over for interim general manager Lee Pelekoudas.
Known for his skill in drafting players, Zduriencik worked with Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin.
Since his arrival in Milwaukee in 1999, the Brewers have drafted Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks as well as 2007 NL Rookie of the Year Ryan Braun and others who formed the young foundation of this season’s playoff team.
