The San Francisco Giants have fired its general manager Bobby Evans. He had been the team’s general manager since 2015.
The team will begin its search for a new general manager immediately.
“I want to thank Bobby for his tireless work on behalf of the Giants,” team President and CEO Laurence M. Baer said in a team statement. “He played an important role in our team’s success throughout his tenure, which includes three World Series Championships, four NL pennants, and eight playoff appearances. We look forward to new leadership to continue our historic record of success.”
The Giants have had back-to-back losing seasons. San Francisco is entering the final week of the season.
Last season, the Giants went 64-98 in 162 games. This season, through 156 games, they team has a 72-84 record.
While Evans was fired as the team’s general manager, the team is expected to ask him to stay within the franchise, according to the San Francisco Gate. However, at this time, it is not clear if he will stay with the team moving forward.
Executive Vice President Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy are signed through the end of the 2019 season. Both are expected to keep their jobs.
Evans began his tenure with the team as an administrative assistant in 1994. Over the past 25-years, he has had many jobs, before his promotion to general manager in 2015. He spent nine-years prior as the team’s assistant general manager.
“I take great pride in the longstanding continuity of our baseball department,” Giants Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Brian Sabean said. “I want to express my thanks to Bobby for all he has given to the Giants over the past 25-years and for his countless contributions. I’ll be working closely with Larry as the organization finds its next leader of baseball operations.”
