Phillies name their new GM


The Phillies have named Sam Fuld their general manager.

Fuld, 39, has been a member of the Phillies’ front office since 2017, most recently as director of integrative baseball performance.

The New Hampshire native played at Stanford and spent eight seasons in the major leagues with four different clubs before embarking on a front-office career.

Fuld will report to Dave Dombrowski, who earlier this month was named the Phillies' first-ever president of baseball operations.

Earlier this fall, Fuld was the runner-up for the Boston Red Sox manager's job.

Jorge Velandia was promoted to assistant GM in the Phillies’ remade front office. The native of Venezuela played in the majors with six different clubs from 1997-2008 and has spent the last decade in a variety of player development, player personnel, coaching and advisory roles in the Phillies organization.

Terry Ryan was named special assistant to the general manager. Ryan has been with the Phillies for four years as a special assignment scout after 31 years in the Minnesota Twins’ organization, 19 as general manager.
