San Francisco Giants general manager Bobby Evans stepped down on Monday after three seasons, paying the price for another disappointing campaign that saw the franchise fail to reach the postseason once more.
A statement from the Giants said Evans was relieved of his duties but would remain with the club in another capacity.
“I want to thank Bobby for his tireless work on behalf of the Giants,” Giants chief executive Larry Baer said in a statement.
“He played an important role in our team’s success throughout his tenure, which includes three World Series championships, four NL pennants and eight playoff appearances. We look forward to new leadership to continue our historic record of success.”
Executive vice president Brian Sabean said he would work with Baer to find a replacement.
“I take great pride in the longstanding continuity of our baseball department,” Sabean said.
“I want to express my thanks to Bobby for all he has given to the Giants over the past 25 years and for his countless contributions.
“I’ll be working closely with with Larry as the organization finds its next leader of baseball operations.”
The Giants dominated baseball in the early part of the decade, winning three World Series between 2010 and 2014.
But the club’s fortunes have nosedived in recent seasons. They are currently 72-84 in the National League West, 15 games adrift of the division leaders the Los Angeles Dodgers.
