Longtime MLB Executive Has Been Fired

The Texas Rangers made another major change to their organization on Wednesday. John Daniels, who had been the team's president of baseball operations for 17 years.

was relieved of his duties. This comes just two days after the Rangers fired manager Chris Woodward.

Rangers owner Ray Davies issued a statement following the news, saying that the main reason for the decision was the team's not being competitive since 2016.

"This morning, I informed John Daniels that his contract will not be renewed at the end of the season and that he is being relieved of his duties immediately," Davis said.

John's accomplishments in his 17 years running our Baseball Operations division are numerous. He and his staff put together the best teams in the history of this franchise.

Their impact on development has been a staggering number of our player development, scouting, and analysis groups.

“But the bottom line is that we have had a no-win record since 2016 and for most of that time, have not been competitive in the AL West.

While I am sure we are moving in the right direction, I think there has been a change in leadership. It will be beneficial for the baseball operations department going forward."
