Kim Ng, a vice president and assistant general manager with the Dodgers who has been with the club for the past nine years, has reportedly left the Dodgers to become senior vice president of baseball operations for MLB, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.â†µ
Joe Torre last month took a position with MLB as executive vice president of baseball operations, a position which oversees baseball operations, umpiring activities, and on field activities, in addition to other things. It is unclear whether or not Ng would report to or work with Torre, but it wouldn't be a surprise. Ng not only worked with Torre for the last three years in Los Angeles, but did so in New York as well when Ng was VP and assistant GM with the Yankees from 1998-2001.â†µ
Ng interviewed for the Dodgers' GM position in 2005, becoming the first woman in MLB history every to be interviewed for a GM position. She was also a finalist for the Seattle GM job in 2008. Ng's responsibilities with the Dodgers included all facets of player acquisition, overseeing salary arbitration and managing the day-to-day operations of the research, video, clubhouse and team travel departments.â†µ
