The San Diego Padres have decided not to renew the contract of farm director Sam Geaney.

Geaney departs the organization after spending nearly seven years leading San Diego's Minor League system.

He was hired in October 2014, just a couple months after the Padres tabbed A.J. Preller to lead baseball operations.

The Padres have disappointed this season, leading to speculation recently about potential staffing changes that would go beyond Geaney’s dismissal.
