Minasian, formerly the Braves’ assistant GM, is bringing three other members of the Braves’ front office with him to Orange County, Calif., as first reported by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic: assistant GM Alex Tamin, special assistant Dom Chiti and scout Rick Williams.
Tamin had been one of Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos’ top assistants since December 2017. Tamin, a numbers guru, was previously the director of baseball operations for the Dodgers, with whom he’d worked since 2011. Tamin has a law degree from UCLA and still resides in California. He’ll be Minasian’s right-hand man with the Angels, just as Minasian was to Anthopoulos in Atlanta.
