WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Nationals promoted Mike DeBartolo and Sam Mondry-Cohen to the title of assistant general manager, the team announced Tuesday.

DeBartolo and Mondry-Cohen each moved through the organization following internships. DeBartolo started as a baseball operations intern in 2012. He eventually moved to Director of Baseball Operations in 2016. He held that role until Tuesday’s bump in stature to Assistant General Manager, Baseball Operations.

Mondry-Cohen started as a baseball operations intern in 2009. He was named Assistant General Manager, Baseball Research and Development on Tuesday after serving as the Director of Baseball Research and Development for four seasons (2015–18).

DeBartolo “will lead in synthesizing information from across the organization to aid in decisions affecting the 40-man roster. These decisions range from salary arbitration and contract extensions to free agency, trades and other matters concerning baseball operations,” the team said in a press release.

Mondry-Cohen “will oversee the front office’s analysis of baseball data and the development of department-wide baseball systems. His responsibilities include the projection of player performance, strategic planning, and the use of data to optimize on-field performance.”
