Kansas City Royals promoting Dayton Moore to president and JJ Picollo to GM

After 15 years under Dayton Moore’s leadership, the Kansas City Royals will have a new general manager. However, Moore isn’t going anywhere.

Royals CEO and chairman John Sherman will promote Moore, who has officially held the title of senior vice president of baseball operations/general manager, to president of baseball operations. JJ Picollo will move from assistant general manager for player personnel to general manager.

The Royals have not officially announced the promotions yet, but a news conference including Sherman and Moore has been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. A source confirmed that the promotions were coming, as first reported by MLB Network insider and Audacy Sports host Jon Heyman.

Moore became the the sixth general manager in franchise history on June 8, 2006. He oversaw the club through its rebuilding phase that led to back-to-back World Series appearances in 2014 and 2015, including the World Series championship in 2015. That marked the franchise’s first title since 1985.

Picollo, currently in his seventh season as vice president/assistant GM, has held that role since January 2015. He has overseen the Royals farm system and player development in that role.

Cohen must be asking permission to talk to everyone. And then they all get promoted
