President and CEO Derrick Hall said it’s exciting for the organization to add two minority hires to the management team.

There are 30 teams in Major League Baseball. And for most of this season, the Diamondbacks have had the 29th or 30th best record in the league. In other words, they’ve had a terrible season.

That’s led to changes in management. The team has officially announced the hiring of Dave Stewart as Senior Vice President and General Manager and De Jon Watson as Senior Vice President for Baseball Operations.

President and CEO Derrick Hall said it’s exciting for the organization to add two minority hires to the management team.

We also talked with Jesse Sanchez, national baseball writer for MLB.com, who said the Diamondbacks needed to make a bold move.
