SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres announced today that Paul DePodesta, former Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has joined the Padres as Special Assistant for Baseball Operations. DePodesta will report to CEO Sandy Alderson and will work closely with all members of the Baseball Operations Department, including Executive Vice President/General Manager Kevin Towers. DePodesta is scheduled to join the Padres on July 13.

"Paul has one of the most insightful and creative minds in baseball," said Alderson. "He will be a great resource for Kevin Towers, the entire Baseball Operations Department, and me. Paul is a terrific addition to an already outstanding front office staff."

DePodesta, 33, served as the Dodgers' Executive Vice President and General Manager for two seasons (2004-05) and in 2004, helped guide the organization to its first postseason berth since 1996. Prior to joining the Dodgers, DePodesta served as the Assistant General Manager of the Oakland Athletics for five years (1999-2003), a tenure during which the A's tied for the best winning percentage in baseball (392-255).

He began his baseball career as an intern with the Cleveland Indians in 1996, and served as an Advance Scout in 1997 and 1998.
