The New York Mets have announced that Zack Scott is the team's new acting general manager following the firing of Jared Porter.
“Zack has plenty of championship experience to draw upon,” Mets President Sandy Alderson said in a statement. “He has been an integral part of our decision-making processes since his arrival. The entire baseball operations staff, including myself, will continue to work collaboratively.”
Scott had originally been hired by the team in December to serve as senior vice president and assistant general manager.
Porter was fired following an ESPN report into unsolicited explicit texts and photos he had continuously sent to a female reporter back during his time with the Chicago Cubs.
