The Reds, Mets, and Padres all made notable moves in their front office. Let's take a look at the moves made:
- The Cincinnati Reds extended general manager Walt Jocketty's contract for three years, through the 2014 season, the club announced via Twitter. Jocketty's contract was set to expire after the 2011 season, but all signs pointed to him being retained by the club. In an interview, Jocketty said the whole coaching staff led by manager Dusty Baker will return for the 2012 season.
- The New York Mets let go of two holdovers from former Mets general manager Omar Minaya's tenure, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Rubin reports Sandy Alderson and the Mets didn't renew the contracts of former Minaya deputies Wayne Krivsky and Bryan Lambe.
The San Diego Padres made a series of moves themselves, according to Corey Brock of MLB.com. The Padres extend the contracts of A.J. Hinch, Fred Uhlman Jr. and Jason McLeod through end of 2013. Hinch was also promoted to Vice President and assistant general manager of the Padres. McLeod and Uhlman were already serving as Vice Presidents/assistant general managers.
