Following last week’s firing of Jared Porter, the New York Mets have named Zack Scott as their acting general manager.
Scott joined the organization as the club’s senior vice president/assistant general manager on Dec. 23, 2020.
“Zack has plenty of championship experience to draw upon,” Mets president Sandy Alderson said in a statement. “He has been an integral part of our decision-making processes since his arrival. The entire baseball operations staff, including myself, will continue to work collaboratively.”
