The Minnesota Twins announced Friday that they have named Jeremy Zoll Director of Minor League Operations, Daniel Adler Director of Baseball Operations and Brad Steil Director of Professional Scouting.
Zoll, 27, spent the last two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers as Assistant Director of Player Development and served as Senior Manager of Player Development in 2015. In his most recent role with the Dodgers, Zoll was responsible for assisting in the oversight of the minor league system. He worked with Dodgers player development leaders regarding on-field philosophies and special programs, and aided the Research and Development department in the implementation of various initiatives. Prior to his time with the Dodgers, Zoll worked as Coordinator of Advance Scouting for the Los Angeles Angels in 2014. The Ridgewood, NJ native is a 2012 graduate of Haverford College, where he was also a catcher for the Black Squirrels.
Adler, 31, began his career in baseball as an intern with the Labor Relations Department of Major League Baseball during the summers of 2009 and 2011. Adler assisted the league's counsel with collective bargaining, handled player injury grievances and researched the amateur draft, arbitration, and free agent draft compensation systems. Following his experience with MLB, Adler worked for Boston Consulting Group where he focused on assessing the firm's internal analytics capabilities and designed the structure of new platforms. In March of 2012, Daniel was hired by the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League to launch and direct a newly created Football Research and Development department - one of the first of its kind in the NFL. Adler partnered with the coaching staff to enhance game management strategies, analyze trade opportunities and make recommendations during the draft. The Cleveland, OH native completed his JD/MBA at Harvard University in May.
Steil, 41, has transitioned into the role of Director of Professional Scouting after spending the previous five seasons as Director of Minor League Operations. In his new role, he will oversee the professional scouting staff to establish scouting philosophies and represent the Pro Scouting department in all conversations pertaining to player personnel matters. Steil, who has spent the last 17 seasons in the Twins organization, was originally hired as the Administrative Assistant for Scouting in 2001 and was promoted to Baseball Operations Assistant in July of 2003. He was named Assistant Director of Baseball Operations in January of 2006 and served in that capacity until being promoted to Director of Baseball Operations in 2007. The Litchfield, MN native graduated magna cum laude from Concordia College in 1999. He also attended the St. Thomas Graduate School of Business.
Additionally, the Twins have promoted Ezra Wise, 27, to Baseball Operations Assistant. After successfully fulfilling internships with three different Major League teams, Wise will transition into a full-time role with the Twins assisting in all areas of baseball operations.
