Mariners’ Dipoto promotes three to new jobs

New general manager Jerry Dipoto continued his restructuring of the Mariners’ front office Thursday, promoting three individuals to key executive positions, including Jeff Kingston, named the club’s vice president and assistant GM for baseball operations. In his new role, Kingston will oversee the player development department.

Kingston has served as assistant GM since Sept. 17, 2009. Prior to joining the Mariners, Kingston worked as an assistant to San Diego’s player development director. He was with the Padres from 2001-09.

Tom Allison will become the club’s vice president of player personnel and will oversee all aspects of the scouting operation, including amateur, professional and international. Prior to joining Seattle, Allison worked in various scouting capacities with the New York Mets (1995-99), Milwaukee Brewers (2000-06), Arizona Diamondbacks (2007-2010) and Boston Red Sox (2011-2012).

Lee MacPhail IV will serve as director of professional scouting, filling the spot previously held by Allison. McPhail joined Seattle as a scout in November 2012 after working for the Baltimore Orioles (2007-12), Minnesota Twins (2006-07), Washington Nationals (2002-06), Twins (1998-2002), Cleveland Indians (1996-98), Texas Rangers (1995-96) and Orioles (1991-95).

MacPhail,  Tom McNamara (amateur scouting) and Tim Kissner (international) will all report to Allison.

    I’m assuming despite some personnel remaining how they go about doing things will be different. I’d love to hear how Dipoto and Kevin Mather are changing the culture not only on the team but the whole organization.

      It’s more than hard to imagine anybody with the horsepower to manage ‘up’ under Lincoln. We’ll see, but so far he’s managed to ensure failure — or fast exiting– of all the others.
      We have no objective reason to expect anything different than what we’ve seen for decades of Lincoln-rule. The surprise won’t be in more of the same old song at the end of 2016 or 2017, but in any sustained success beyond the previous, entrenched and cul d sac norm under Lincoln– ultimately going nowhere, no matter the enthusiastic “This time for SURE!” start of the new guys.

    MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that the M’s are pursuing both Dan Wilson and Raul Ibanez for roles with the club. Wilson and Padres bench coach Dave Roberts are reportedly the candidates to be the 3B coach. Raul might be offered a front office position.
