Last month Joe Torre was said to be “leaning toward” taking a job with Major League Baseball and now Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that commissioner Bud Selig will officially announce tomorrow that Torre has joined MLB as executive vice president for baseball operations.

According to Heyman he’ll be “overseeing on-field activity for MLB” in a role previously filled by Sandy Alderson, who left the job to take over as the Mets’ general manager this offseason.

Torre, who announced with two weeks remaining on the schedule that he’d be stepping down as Dodgers manager following last season, has been a big-league manager for each of the past 21 seasons and the 71-year-old future Hall of Famer has a total of 29 seasons of managing experience. Joel Sherman of the New York Post notes that Torre will be working out of New York rather than staying in Los Angeles.
