The Diamondbacks name Tony La Russa as Chief Baseball Officer. La Russa will report to Derrick Hall and oversee the entire baseball operations department.
GM Kevin Towers will be reporting directly to LaRussa. It remains to be seen if this was a move to restart the Diamondback franchise, after their terrible start this season. Kirk Gibson was already on the managerial hotseat, so this might be a bad sign for him. Towers recently said he was unsure of his future due to the bad start, and this doesn't look good for him, either.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
