” After the consultations with Shiraz, we mutually agreed that it is best to component natures at this time ,” president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said in a statement.” Shiraz has expressed a desire to seek a brand-new opportunity where he can utilize his experiences and take on a more significant role than we currently have available.

Rehman had been with Texas since October 2018, coming over after five seasons as an deputy GM with the Cubs. Rehman was one of three AGM’s in Texas, pairing with Josh Boyd and Mike Daly as the top lieutenants for Daniels and general manager Chris Young.
Young was hired as GM last-place December, which Rehman demonstrated likely frisked some persona in today’s decision.” I’m extremely grateful to ownership — Ray Davis and Neil Leibman — and baseball leadership- Jon Daniels, Chris Young and Chris Woodward — for the opportunity to work for the Rangers organization, and have enjoyed my 3 years with the team . … Ultimately, the redistribution of front office responsibilities after( Young) came aboard this winter left home with a less fulfilling and impactful capacity, so we agreed to part methods at this time ,” Rehman told Weaver, who hears from others in the organization that Rehman was dismissed as opposed to stepping apart as part of a reciprocal decision.” I am very happy to my next challenge and choose the part front office, the instructs, the players, and Rangers fans all the very best in the future .”

Boddy’s contract with Cincinnati expires at the end of the year, according to Weaver.
Boddy rose to prominence as the founder of Driveline Baseball, an independent data-driven training facility that weighs innumerable MLB pitchers among its patients. Weaver notes that Young worked out at Driveline during his eras as a player, and Boddy consulted with the Rangers on their 2018 amateur draft, so he’s surely familiar with the top decision-makers in the Texas front office.
