Mariners add Joe McIlvaine to front office

Congrats to the mastermind behind the Arnie Gooch deal!

Former major league general manager Joe McIlvaine was hired as a special assistant to Seattle Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik on Monday.

The Mariners announced the move in Seattle, shortly after beating the Cleveland Indians 12-6 in a game shortened to seven innings by rain.

The 64-year-old McIlvaine served as general manager of the San Diego Padres and New York Mets during the 1990s. He has been with the Minnesota Twins since 1998, the last 11 years as a special assistant.

“Joe has had success as a general manager, a scouting director (including internationally), a front office executive and in the role of special assistant,” Zduriencik said in a release issued by the team. “He is a very versatile talent evaluator, and adding him to our staff in Seattle makes us a stronger organization. I am looking forward to working closely with him.”
