Yankees hire former Giants GM Brian Sabean to executive role
For 30 seasons, Brian Sabean has been a staple of the San Francisco Giants organization.
That all changed in 2023, when three days into the new year, the former New York Yankees scout and Vice President of Player Development and Scouting announced his return to New York in an executive role. Sabean will serve as Executive Advisor to Senior Vice President and General Manager Brian Cashman.

“The San Francisco Giants would like to extend its deepest gratitude to Brian Sabean for his enormous contributions to our organization and wish him the best of luck on his new position with the New York Yankees,” the Giants said in a press release. “Brian has been a pillar of our game and a cornerstone of this franchise for 30 years and we are extremely appreciative of his leadership and the legacy he leaves behind. As head of the baseball division from 1997-2018, Brian was the driving force behind one of the most successful eras in the club’s history, including three World Championships (2010, 2012, 2014), four National League pennants (2002, 2010, 2012, 2014), five NL West Division flags (1997, 2000, 2003, 2010 and 2012) and three Wild Card entries (2002, 2014, 2016). We truly believe he’s a Hall of Fame worthy executive in every sense of the word and wish him, his wife Amanda, and his entire family nothing but the best in the future. He will always be a Forever Giant.”
Sabean was named the MLB Executive of the Year in 2003 and 2012 by Baseball America for his leadership with the Giants.
