According to ESPN, the team is planning to have a joint venture in the baseball operations department.

Jeff Passan is reporting that Assistant General Managers Eddie Romero, Brian O’Halloran, and Zack Scott will lead the Baseball Operations department. These three will share the role for the rest of the 2019 season.

Dombrowski had a huge hand in building the 2018 Red Sox team that won the World Series. They defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers last October.

The 63-year-old had been with the Red Sox since the 2015 season. When he won the World Series as the executive of the Red Sox in 2018, it was his second World Series as a GM, as he was also part of the Florida Marlins Championship in 1997.

He was the 1990 UPI Executive of the Year. Baseball America also named him Executive of the Year in 2006 and 2018.

Besides the Red Sox and Marlins, he also worked for the Chicago White Sox, Montreal Expos, and the Detroit Tigers.

He was initially the Tigers President and CEO before firing both general manager Randy Smith and manager Phil Garner during the 2002 season. He assumed the President and GM role for the franchise.

Dombrowski was the GM of the Marlins. He began his tenure with the Expos as their Director of Player Development. He then became their GM on July 5, 1988, becoming the youngest GM at the time at 31.

He began his career with the White Sox as their Administrative Assist in their Minor League Organization. He them advanced to Assistant GM.
