The Los Angeles Dodgers have promoted Brandon Gomes to general manager, the team said on Tuesday. The former vice president and assistant GM is the 12th general manager in franchise history.

Gomes, 37, has been in the Dodgers organization since 2017. A former pitcher, Gomes played five major-league seasons for the Tampa Bay Rays from 2011 to 2015, making 173 career relief appearances with a 4.20 ERA.

The Dodgers also hired two new assistant general managers on Tuesday, promoting director of baseball operations Alex Slater and hiring Washington Football Team chief legal officer Damon Jones. Slater has been in the Dodgers front office since 2014, joining when Andrew Friedman arrived in Los Angeles as president of baseball operations. He worked for the San Diego Padres from 2009 to 2014.

Jones returns to baseball after 13 months as WFT's chief legal officer. He previously spent more than a decade with the Washington Nationals as senior vice president and general counsel. His full title with Los Angeles will be vice president, assistant GM and baseball legal counsel.

The Dodgers are also promoting Rob Hill to director of minor league pitching, a source told The Athletic. HIll was the club's pitching coordinator.

Los Angeles also promoted Brandon McDaniel to vice president of player performance and Thomas Albert to head athletic trainer.
