Padres Hire Josh Byrnes

The Padres hired former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes as senior VP of baseball operations, the team announced. Padres GM Jed Hoyer knows Byrnes from their time working in Boston's front office.

“I am excited to work with Josh again,” Hoyer said. “He is one of the best baseball minds in the game and will be a terrific addition to our front office.”

Byrnes was Arizona's GM from 2005-10 after working for the Indians, Rockies and Red Sox. The Diamondbacks won the NL West in 2007, Byrnes' second season in Arizona. The D'Backs fired Byrnes along with manager A.J. Hinch this summer and eventually replaced him with Hoyer's predecessor, Kevin Towers. Byrnes will also be reunited with Hinch, who joined the Padres in September.
