Three high-ranking executives within baseball tell Buster Olney of ESPN.com that MLB president and chief operating officer Bob DuPuy is expected to move out of his current role.
“He’s on his way out,” a team official said.
DuPuy has served as president and chief operating officer for the past eight years. Some have viewed DuPuy as a possible successor to commissioner Bud Selig, whose contract runs through 2012, though some executives told Olney that the pair are “not as close as they once were.” Maybe this could create a possible opening for Stan Kasten? Just spit-balling it right now, but it makes some sense.
According to Olney, the timing for the change is not yet known. We’ll pass along more updates once they are made available.
