With the loss of former GM and VP of operations Alex Anthopoulos, the Toronto Blue Jays were in need of a VP after appointing Ross Atkins their GM. Many people believe that Anthopoulos will be named the Minnesota Twins GM after the Twins relieved the duties of previous GM Terry Ryan this season. Reported first by Shi Davidi, the Blue Jays have found their new VP in former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington.

   After leading the Red Sox to a World Series title in 2013, Ben Cherington got the boot after the 2014 season when the Red Sox named Dave Dombrowski GM and VP of baseball operations. This was mostly a direct cause of a last place finish in 2014, along with very expensive contacts given out to Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval who have not performed to expectations. Cherington took some time away from the game and taught classes at Columbia University.

Cherington began his professional baseball executive career back in 1998 as an advanced scout for the Cleveland Indians. He worked under current Blue Jay’s president Mark Shapiro’s wing for a year before Cherington joined the Boston Red Sox in 1999 as an amateur scout and worked his way up through the organization since then. Cherington has stated that he intends to work on all areas of the front office for the Blue Jays, with player development being a big key for himself and future team success.
