Phillies Part Ways With Ruben Amaro Jr., Name Proefrock Interim GM
The Phillies today announced that Ruben Amaro Jr. "will no longer serve" as the team's GM, and the club will "immediately begin a new search for Amaro's replacement." In the meantime, Assistant GM Scott Proefrock will serve as interim GM. Amaro assumed the GM role after the '08 World Series. The move means that the Phillies "could enter next season with a new president, general manager and manager" (PHILLY.com, 9/10).
