Yankees appoint Brian Sabean as executive advisor to the general manager

The New York Yankees today announced that they have appointed Brian Sabean as Executive Advisor to Senior Vice President and General Manager Brian Cashman.

Sabean, 66, re-joins the Yankees after spending the previous 30 seasons with the San Francisco Giants. He spent the last four seasons as an Executive Vice President for San Francisco, working on strategic initiatives as a senior advisor and evaluator. Prior to that, Sabean served as the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations from 2015-18 and as the Giants Senior Vice President and General Manager from 1996-2015. Under Sabean’s leadership from 1996-2018, San Francisco earned eight postseason births, claiming five division titles, four National League pennants and three World Series Championships.

During Sabean’s tenure as GM, the Giants were named the Topps “Organization of the Year” in both 2009 and 2011 and the Baseball America “Organization of the Year” in 2010. He was also named Major League Baseball’s “Executive of the Year” by the Sporting News in 2003 and by Baseball America in 2003 and 2012_._

The Yankees are a saber-friendly organization. Guess Sabean wants the headaches. :)

That’s a better job than assistant to the traveling secretary.
