Mets promote Zauzmer to asst. GM (source)

December 28th, 2021

NEW YORK -- In a continuation of their front-office renovation, the Mets have promoted Ben Zauzmer to assistant general manager, a source told on Tuesday. Zauzmer had been the club's director of analytics for roughly a year after the Mets hired him away from the Dodgers.

Zauzmer joins Bryn Alderson and Ian Levin at the assistant GM level, under general manager Billy Eppler and team president Sandy Alderson.

Under Zauzmer, the Mets have continued to build up a research and development staff that has exploded in size over the past few seasons. The club now employs more than two dozen analysts, engineers and coordinators. Less than two years ago, they employed only one person with a focus on data science.

Before coming to the Mets, Zauzmer spent six seasons with the Dodgers, helping Los Angeles win a World Series in 2020.
