Tigers hire Giants GM Scott Harris as president of baseball operations

Baltimore, Md. — There was definitely a spring in manager AJ Hinch’s step here Monday. He’d known for a couple of weeks that, in all likelihood, Tigers chairman and CEO Christopher Ilitch was going to hire San Francisco Giants general manager Scott Harris as the Tigers president of baseball operations.

And finally, he could let the cat out of the bag.

The Tigers named Scott Harris their president of baseball operations.

“Man, it’s inspirational to see the direction of the franchise and what Scott can bring to the organization,” Hinch said. “The way his mind thinks. The vision he has for this organization. He’s been around so many successful teams and successful people. I think he’s going to do it his way and he’s going to have a lot of information for us moving forward on what we need to do to get this back to being a winning organization.
