Assistant GM Scott Proefrock will be Interim GM for the remainder of the season, as a search for a permanent GM goes on, as new Team President Andy MacPhail will head the search.
A press conference is scheduled for 3 PM, which will be live on CSN and CSNPhilly.com.
“Ruben has had a direct impact on some of the best years in the team’s history," said MacPhail. "He helped to create some great memories for Phillies fans with his accomplishments, but in order to return to a top-contending club, we believe this is the right thing to do as we continue the rebuilding process.”
Amaro took over the GM role after the 2008 World Series. He oversaw postseason trips in his first three years, but saw some of the worst seasons in recent memory in the last four years.
Proefrock joined as Assistant GM after the 2008 World Series. Prior to his arrival to Philly, he was with the Baltimore Orioles for three seasons as the Director of Baseball Administration. He also worked with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays as Director of Baseball Administration and later on as Assistant GM.
