Joe Bohringer has resigned his position as the Mariners’ assistant general manager in order to retire from baseball, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports (Twitter link). Bohringer will remain with the team until the end of the year “to help guide in the transition” to a new hire.
Bohringer was promoted the AGM job prior to the 2019 season, following three-plus years as special assistant to general manager Jerry Dipoto. Though Bohringer is only 50 years old, he has spent 31 seasons in pro baseball, dating back to his beginnings as an intern with the Pirates and Yankees front office while still a student at MIT. Bohringer’s resume includes front office and scouting positions with the Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Cubs, and a prior stint with the Mariners as an area scouting supervisor from 2002-06 before returning to Seattle in 2015.
