Joe Torre, who turns 80 in July, is not expected to do much groundwork this season. Torre was also a nine-time All-Star during the period of 1960-1977. He also managed the New York Yankees for 29 seasons until 2010 and won four World Series titles with the team. He was hired as MLB’s executive vice president for baseball operations in February 2011 and became chief baseball officer in December 2014 as Rob Manfred prepared to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. Now, Torre will step down in favour of Chris Young, who will be the new MLB disciplinarian.
