Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Nationals have hired Jack McKeon as a senior advisor to GM Mike Rizzo. Rosenthal notes that McKeon’s son Kasey also works in the Nationals’ front office as the director of player procurement.
McKeon, 88, was a manager of five different teams between 1973-2011. The only time a team he managed reached the postseason — the 2003 Marlins — he won a championship. McKeon has also been a general manager and he played in the minor leagues between 1949-59.
