Tigers hire Giants GM Scott Harris as president of baseball operations

The Detroit Tigers are set to hire San Francisco Giants general manager Scott Harris as their new president of baseball operations.

Harris, 35, will replace the recently fired Al Avila as the Tigers' top baseball decision-maker.

Avila, who had served as the Tigers GM since August of 2015, was let go in August after offseason efforts to build a contending roster yielded little in the way of results.

Harris had been in his third season as GM of the Giants under president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi.

Prior to joining the Giants, Harris worked for seven years in baseball operations for the Chicago Cubs
