Padres hire top talent evaluator A.J. Preller as their new general manager.
A.J. Preller comes from the Texas Rangers where he served as the assistant general manager. The name that had been thrown around was Yankees executive Billy Eppler but they went in another direction. Preller has been in Texas for 10 seasons and has overseen both the player development and scouting departments.
