Mets offer Jared Porter their GM job: source

The Mets, suddenly on the fast track in their offseason plans, have landed on a general manager to work under Sandy Alderson.

Jared Porter has received an offer from the Mets to become their next GM, a source confirmed to the Daily News. Porter has served as the Diamondbacks assistant GM for the past four seasons under GM Mike Hazen in the organization. The team has not yet made the hiring official, but the remainder of the process is expected to cross the finish line without any hiccups.

Porter, 40, joined the D-backs after parts of two seasons with the Chicago Cubs. He served as the Cubs’ director of professional scouting during their first world championship in 2016. He also worked in the Boston Red Sox’s front office and won championships with the club in 2004, ’07 and ’13.

He worked his way up the ladder in Boston’s organization under Theo Epstein, beginning with his internship year in 2004 at the Red Sox’s spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla. Porter became the club’s player development assistant from 2006-07 before moving on to scouting. He served in multiple scouting positions for the Red Sox from 2008 until 2015, when he was the team’s director of professional scouting in what would end up being his final year in Boston.

They were going to announce this two days ago but Porter caught wind of the McCann signing and asked for a delay until it was clear that had nothing f to do with mccann’s signing

Anyone who wins a championship in his internship year must be the real deal.
