The Red Sox will hire Bloom, the 36-year-old senior vice president of baseball operations with the Tampa Bay Rays, as their next head of baseball operations. The news was first reported by the New York Post on Friday evening.

  Report: Senators shut down search for president of hockey ops for season The Ottawa Senators have shut down their search for a president of hockey operations until at least the end of this season, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports. Friedman added it was unclear whether the club would resume its search. Back in March, the team said it intended to make the hire "to support and provide guidance" to general manager Pierre Dorion while filling the void left by the late Bryan Murray. The team also said at the time that the potential new hire wouldn't threaten Dorion's position.Murray, the club's former general manager and head coach, died of cancer in August 2017.

The Red Sox have hired Chaim Bloom , the vice president of baseball operations for the Tampa Bay Rays , to run their baseball ops department. Bloom , who graduated from Yale in 2004 with a degree in classics, joined the Rays in 2005 as an intern. He became steeped in the organizational culture

The Red Sox had not announced it officially as of Friday evening and league rules restrict teams from breaking news during the World Series, but an industry source indicated an announcement could occur as soon as this weekend.

Bloom will become the Sox’ fourth hire to lead the baseball operations department since John Henry and his ownership group purchased the team in 2002. He replaces Dombrowski, the big-spending veteran executive who was fired in August.

The runner-up to become the New York Mets general manager last year, Bloom has been part of a Rays organization that’s achieved remarkable success given its financial limitations.

Despite having an MLB-low payroll of $60 million this year, the Rays won 96 games and took the Astros to the brink of elimination in the American League Division Series before losing in Game 5.

The Red Sox baseball operations department may be close to gaining new leadership. According to multiple major league sources, Chaim Bloom , the vice president of baseball operations for the Tampa Bay Rays for the last three years, has interviewed with the Red Sox about joining their

The Red Sox are likely to hire Rays exec Chaim Bloom to be their new GM. Red Sox ownership announced plans to cut payroll in September. They had baseball 's highest payroll in 2018 (7.4 million) and again in 2019 (9.1 million), which is easier to swallow when you win the World Series

The Rays have never had a payroll higher than $76 million but continue to set the bar for efficiency, having won 90 games or more in seven of the last 12 years, making the playoffs five times in that span.

Bloom will enter the Red Sox organization at the start of what Henry called a “challenging offseason,” one in which the Sox want to get under the luxury tax threshold of $208 million. With their current salary obligations, they’ll have to cut about $30 million from the roster ahead of 2020, while also needing to fill holes in the rotation, bullpen, first base and second base.

Mookie Betts is a year from free agency and clearly isn’t taking a hometown discount, J.D. Martinez can opt out of his remaining contract this winter and the Red Sox owe almost half their payroll to a starting rotation that had its three highest-paid pitchers spend significant time on the injured list in 2019.

But Bloom is no stranger to dealing with tight conditions, having been a part of an organization that’s traded stars such as Evan Longoria and Chris Archer to shed money while acquiring some talented players (Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows included) in return and keeping the Rays competitive throughout.

He was a Yale University graduate in 2004 and interned with the Padres before starting his career as an intern with the Rays. He’s been there the last 15 years.

These are the contract situations that keep general managers and team presidents — or whatever the official title happens to be for the decision makers — up at night. They don’t have easy resolutions, though we’ll try to offer options where options might exist.
