Giants reportedly hire Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi as head of baseball operations

The Giants have found a new executive to run their team.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants have hired now-former Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi as their new head of baseball operations.

The #sfgiants have a new head of baseball ops. Farhan Zaidi has taken the job, I’m told.

Zaidi was named the Dodgers’ general manager in 2014.

Los Angeles made back-to-back World Series in 2017 and 2018. The team had not been to the Fall Classic since 1988.

San Francisco head of baseball operations Brian Sabean took a step back after the season. The Giants also fired general manager Bobby Evans in September after the team went a disappointing 73-89 following an offseason where it traded for All-Stars Evan Longoria and Andrew McCutchen. Sabean remains with the team but his role is yet to be determined.

Zaidi will be tasked with finding a new GM.
