BOSTON (WPRI) — One year after helping the Boston Red Sox win a team-record 108 games en route to their ninth World Series championship in franchise history and fourth since 2004, Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski is out.
Team spokesman Kevin Gregg told the media late Sunday night that the team has parted ways with Dombrowski.
An official announcement is expected on Monday. ESPN reports that assistant General Manager Eddie Romero will take over as head of the baseball ops department.
Dombrowski joined the Red Sox in 2015 and played a major role in building the team that won the World Series last season.
The news was delivered moments after the Red Sox lost to the rival New York Yankees 10-5 on Sunday night.
The Red Sox are currently ranked third in the AL East and have a 76-67 record in 2019, just one year after winning a team-record 108 games en route to their ninth World Series championship in franchise history and fourth since 2004.
The Red Sox currently are fighting for the second wildcard spot and are ranked third in the AL East division.
