The Mets have promoted Ian Levin and Bryn Alderson to assistant general manager, reports Andy Martino of SNY. Both executives have been with New York for extended periods of time. Levin has been in the organization since 2005, while Alderson joined the Mets in 2011.
Levin had been the Mets’ senior director of baseball operations. Martino notes that he’s taken roles in the analytics and player development departments over the course of his tenure. Alderson, meanwhile, has worked on the scouting side of the organization. He has been the team’s director of professional scouting over the past two seasons.
The Mets’ front office has undergone quite a few changes since last winter’s sale of the franchise. Former general manager Brodie Van Wagenen and a significant portion of his staff left the organization immediately after new owner Steve Cohen took over. Previous GM Sandy Alderson (Bryn Alderson’s father) was brought back as team president.
Jared Porter was hired as general manager but fired shortly after when his past sexual harassment of a reporter came to light. Zack Scott has been functioning as acting general manager since that time. Martino writes that Scott has “earned many fans inside the organization” for his work over the past six months and could eventually earn a permanent promotion, but he continues to hold the position in an interim capacity for now.
