BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox plan to operate without a full-time general manager for now.

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski announced that intention Tuesday in naming Eddie Romero the team’s new senior vice president and assistant general manager.

It is the latest move to take place inside Boston’s baseball operations department since former general manager Mike Hazen left the team earlier this month to become vice president and general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The team says both Romero and senior vice president and assistant general manager Brian O’Halloran will report directly to Dombrowski and assist in all aspects of baseball operations going forward.

Romero, 37, is being promoted after being previously elevated to vice president of international scouting at the start of the 2016 season.
