Tigers Hire Giants GM Scott Harris as President of Baseball Operations

Baltimore, Md. — There was definitely a spring in manager AJ Hinch’s step here Monday. He had known for a few weeks that Tigers chairman and CEO Christopher Ilitch was likely to hire San Francisco Giants general manager Scott Harris as the Tigers president of baseball operations.

And finally he was able to let the cat out of the bag.

“Man, it’s inspiring to see the direction of the franchise and what Scott can bring to the organization,” Hinch said. “The way his mind thinks. The vision he has for this organization. He’s been with so many successful teams and successful people. I think he’s going to do it his way and he’ll have a lot of information for us on what to do to make this a winning organization again.
