When Giants CEO and president Larry Baer rejoins the team Tuesday, he will report to the man who filled his role while he was suspended.
On Saturday, the Giants acknowledged Baer's pending return and announced that Rob Dean, the son-in-law of late Giants principal owners Harmon and Sue Burns, would continue as the MLB control person and be Baer's boss.
"Rob will transition into the role of chairman and will continue as the MLB designated control person," the team said in a statement. "In this capacity, Rob -- along with Larry -- will represent the club with MLB. Rob will also, on behalf of ownership, collaborate with the executive leadership team on major organizational issues. Keeping in line with industry standards, the president of baseball operations reports to the control person, and we will adopt that practice."
