John Ricco Receives Promotion


According to Matt Ehalt of, the Mets have promoted John Ricco to a Senior Vice President/Senior Strategy officer role. There had been rumors that Ricco would leave the organization following the hiring of Brodie Van Wagenen and the various hires that followed him.

I guess you can never have enough smart guys in the room.

“This new role will give me the chance to broaden the scope of my executive experiences, while remaining a contributor to the operations areas I know and enjoy,” Ricco, 50, said in a statement provided Tuesday night by the Mets to Ehalt. “I am intrigued by the possibilities and excited about the challenges ahead.”
