The Texas Rangers have announced that the team has hired Dayton Moore. He will serve as the Senior Advisor of their Baseball Operations staff.
Moore was fired by the Kansas City Royals in September. He was last their President of Baseball Operations.
“I think first and foremost, he’s just a tremendous person,” Rangers GM Chris Young said. “He’s someone that has been a mentor to me, even when I was a player. He’s someone I’ve gone to in this role, just for advice. To have the opportunity to work with somebody that I respect supplementally is just tremendous. I could not be more grateful to Dayton for choosing the Rangers.
“I know he had no shortage of opportunities both inside the game and outside the game and the fact that he chose to come to Texas, I could not be happier. I know he’s going to serve our organization extremely well and will provide wisdom and knowledge and experience and advice, not only for me, but for really everybody in our organization. He is all in and committed to winning. He believes in what we’re doing and I couldn’t be happier to have him on board.”
Moore was hired by the Royals as their General Manager on June 8th, 2006. He replaced Allard Baird.
He was promoted to the President of Baseball Operations in 2022. He was then fired in September by Royals owner John Sherman before the end of the season.
Moore is expected to “collaborate” with Rangers GM Chris Young and other members of the staff.
In 2015, Moore helped form the Royals team that defeated the New York Mets to win the World Series. The Royals won their first World Series since 1985.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
