According to a baseball source, Red Sox farm director Mike Hazen declined an offer to become the Assistant General Manager of the Padres. Hazen interviewed with former Red Sox Assistant G.M. and new Padres G.M. Jed Hoyer last week. Hazen’s decision was first reported by ESPN’s Peter Gammons (via Twitter).
Hazen, a native of Abington, Mass., has been the Sox’ farm director since 2006, when he came from the Indians’ front office. He spent two seasons as a player in the Padres’ minor-league system.
