Twins Announce Baseball Operations Promotions

On the heels of a successful season, the Twins have announced several promotions within their baseball operations department. Daniel Adler and Jeremy Zoll each ascend to the rank of assistant general manager, while Alex Hassan will serve as director of player development and Jeremy Raadt will become the director of baseball systems.

The highest levels of Twins baseball operations are unchanged, so far as is known. Chief baseball officer Derek Falvey and senior VP/GM Thad Levine sit at the top of the food chain, with VP/assistant GM Rob Antony and VP of player personnel Mike Radcliffe still also on the masthead.

Both Adler and Zoll arrived at the Minnesota organization in the fall of 2017, one year after Falvey and Levine took the helm in the front office. The former will run the club’s “Baseball Research and Development staff,” per the announcement, along with playing “a key role in the areas of arbitration, roster construction, athletic performance, player acquisition, and player development.” Zoll will focus his efforts on “player development and player performance efforts throughout the system and its academies, while also having heavy involvement in team operation at the major league level.”

Hassan is a familiar name in these parts. Though he ultimately appeared in only three MLB contests, recording one lone hit, Hassan took a tour of 40-man rosters around the league by way of waiver claims in 2014-15. He’s still just 31 years of age. Hassan will take over the Twins’ player development efforts just a few years after wrapping up his own playing career after the 2016 season.

As for Raadt, he’s a longtime Twins employee whose expertise lies in the technological realm. Per the club, his role requires, among other things, “the incorporation of new technologies, while working closely with front office executives, analysts, scouts, trainers and coaches to assimilate their feedback and direction in the Twins’ baseball system.”
