In an unexpected move, the Padres promoted Director of Media Relations Warren Miller to baseball operations,as reported by Scott Miller, CBSSports.com baseball writer.
The Padres’ front office website now lists Miller as a Minor Leagues manager; however Miller’s official duties are still unknown.
Miller declined an interview request with Chicken Friars, stating in an e-mail:
“I am very flattered that you would ask, but I will politely decline. I never did interviews as a PR person and won’t certainly start now as a staffer in baseball ops/minor leagues. But, I can’t thank you enough for asking. “
He also said in he will reach out to Chicken Friars in a few weeks to give an update on his specific duties.
Not sure what this means, but I hope the move works out for both parities. I speculate this has to do with Tom Gafinkel filing a hole Jeff Moorad didn’t want to fill.
