Brewers President of Baseball Operations David Stearns will be hired by the New York Mets once the 2023 season ends.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan called the move a ‘monumental’ hire for the Mets.
Stearns was named the Brewers General Manager in 2015, succeeding Doug Melvin. At the time, he was the youngest GM in MLB history.
In 2019, Stearns was promoted to president of baseball operations and general manager. After the next season, Matt Arnold became GM, while Stearns remained as president of baseball operations.
Given Stearns’ ability to create a contending team in a small market, doing so by building, evaluating, and at times finding sustainable talent, his philosophy appears to be a perfect fit for Steve Cohen’s Mets, who took a step back amidst a disastrous 2023 season to revamp their farm system in hopes of creating a long-term winning team from the ground up.
