Mariners Change Front Office Structure After Mather
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — The Seattle Mariners will change the structure of their front office operations following the resignation of former team president and CEO Kevin Mather. Mariners chairman John Stanton told reporters at the team’s training facility in Arizona that the club will separate its baseball and business operations. General manager Jerry Dipoto will report to Stanton directly on baseball-related matters, while a new team president will oversee the business side of the operation. Mather resigned last month after a video surfaced online where he made controversial remarks about players.
