“We are excited for Nick to assume the lead over our baseball operations,” Reds CEO Bob Castellini said in a statement. “His hands-on approach as general manager gives us the opportunity to reinstate that role as the top position in our baseball department and keep the years of hard work that happened under his purview producing stronger, more competitive teams.”
Krall, 42, has worked in the Reds’ front office since 2003 and spent the past three seasons as the GM under Williams, who resigned Oct. 7 after nearly 15 seasons with the team.

Williams was credited with strengthening the team’s scouting and farm system, implementing analytics, and establishing a sports science and wellness department.
Before joining the Reds, Krall, a Rossville, Pennsylvania, native, worked in various positions for the Oakland Athletics in 2001 and 2002.
