Padres' new GM Jed Hoyer committed to building winning team

Jed Hoyer, the assistant general manager for the Boston Red Sox, was named as the San Diego Padres new general manager Monday.

Hoyer, 35, replaces Kevin Towers, fired earlier this month after 14 seasons with the team.

"After a thorough search and evaluation of qualified candidates, I am excited to name Jed Hoyer as our executive vice president/general manager," said Jeff Moorad, the Padres' chief executive officer.

"Jed comes from a championship organization where he gained hands-on experience for a club that has had tremendous success in its baseball operations and, particularly, in player development."

Hoyer, who joined the Red Sox in 2002, said he looks forward to "working to build a consistent, winning team that the city will be proud of."

Hoyer takes the helm of the Padres after the team finished fourth in the five-team National League West Division in 2009 with a 75-87 record.
