Sartori hired as assistant GM of Toronto Blue Jays
Jay Sartori has been hired as assistant general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays.
The 31-year-old Sartori had been director of baseball operations of the Washington Nationals for nine months after spending four years as manager of salary and management administration in Major League Baseball's labor relations department.
He will work under Alex Anthopoulos, who was promoted to general manager late in 2009. Sartori will be involved in salary arbitration, contracts and the collective bargaining agreement, the Blue Jays announced Monday.
Special assistant Jon Lalonde will become a special assignment scout after a transition period.
