The Phillies will hire Scott Proefrock as assistant general manager, according to Todd Zolecki.
Proefrock was assistant general manager in Tampa Bay from 1998 to 2005, under Chuck Lamar. He also worked in Atlanta from 1991 to ’95, with Lamar.
Most recently Proefrock worked as Baltimore’s director of baseball administration.
Looks like another Gillick network deal here. Proefrock and Lamar have worked together in the past, so this seems to make sense. Proefrock will be working with the big league roster and budget — I wonder how much experience he has with that, seeing as Tampa’s payroll back then isn’t even close to what the Phillies have now.
