Last season, Kristopher Negron was traded to the Dodgers from the Seattle Mariners as a result of a plethora of injuries that plagued LA’s depth. While the organization surely was not expecting much from him offensively, he showed well for the Dodgers and posted a respectable .259 batting average.
At age 33, Negron announced his retirement from Major League Baseball after playing parts of six seasons for the Cincinnati Reds, Arizona Diamondbacks, Seattle Mariners, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
According to Mark Feinsand, the executive reporter for MLB.com, Kristopher Negron has accepted a position in the Seattle Mariners front office as an Assistant to Director of Player Development.
Kristopher Negrón, who retired earlier this month after spending 2019 with the Mariners and Dodgers, was named Seattle’s new Assistant to Director of Player Development.
