Scott Harris says the Detroit Tigers will hire a general manager to work under him.

Harris was hired by the organization to serve as President of Baseball Operations.

"These jobs are increasingly large and complicated," Harris said. "Every single year they get more complex. Having another bright and talented person to partner with in these jobs is critically important. I think it gives you an edge, bringing more talented people to this front office and empowering them to make decisions that ultimately can put out a better team on the field. That's what we're trying to do, and I think a GM is going to be a big part of that."

Harris served as the general manager under San Francisco Giants president Farhan Zaidi for the last three years.
