Los Angeles Dodgers GM Ned Colletti announced Thursday that the team has hired Gerry Hunsicker as its senior advisor of baseball operations.

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced on Thursday the hiring of long-time baseball executive Gerry Hunsicker as the team's senior advisor of baseball operations, according to a press release.

General Manager Ned Colletti said in a statement that Hunsicker will work at "all levels" with him and president and CEO Stan Kasten. Much of his role will include management of the team's international and minor league scouting and development programs. The 2013 season will be Hunsicker's 35th year in MLB.

Hunsicker was most recently with the Tampa Bay Rays, where as the senior vice president of baseball operations, he oversaw scouting in Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Brazil. He also had experience with the Rays in Asia and Europe.

Hunsicker was the Houston Astros GM from 1996-2004, and The Sporting News named him the 1998 Executive of the Year in helping build the team to a 102-win season. Prior to that, Hunsicker was with the New York Mets and worked his way from director of minor league operations to assistant vice president of baseball operations.
