KC Royals fires Dayton Moore’s chief of baseball operations

Dayton Moore, head of baseball operations for the Kansas City Royal, has been relieved of his duties. Kansas City Royals Chairman and CEO John Sherman held a press conference on Wednesday, September 21, to announce the shooting. The move came shortly after the team was athletically eliminated from the playoffs in 2022. Moore was in the round during the 2015 World Series Championships. But after six straight losing seasons, Sherman says it’s time for a change. Moore has been in charge of baseball operations since 2006. After the team frequently failed to meet expectations in 2022, Sherman felt the need to make the move. The Royals’ CEO also announced that JJ Picollo, a longtime member of the organization, has been appointed executive vice president and general manager to oversee baseball operations, effective immediately. Piccolo became the seventh general manager in the Royals’ history last September. Piccolo first joined Kansas City operations in 2006 as director of player development, and “JJ’s experience in baseball prepared him for the challenges ahead,” Sherman said. “He has played a key role in evaluating and developing many of the most talented players in our franchise, including the 2015 World Championship-winning core team and the youthful core on today’s Major League team. He will bring a new lens and way to lead our baseball operations. I look forward to working with JJ as we We continue to build and develop our team to compete at a high level.”
