Chaim Bloom was named Chief Baseball Officer for the Boston Red Sox on October 28, 2019. In this role, he is responsible for all baseball operations matters.
Prior to arriving in Boston, Bloom spent 15 years (2005-19) in the Tampa Bay Rays baseball operations department, including the final three as Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations. Over his tenure with the club, Bloom worked in nearly every area of the team’s baseball operation and was an integral part of both the Rays’ player development efforts and the team’s on-field performance at the major league level.
Originally hired by the Rays as a baseball operations intern in 2005, Bloom joined the club on a full-time basis shortly after and was appointed Assistant Director, Minor League Operations in 2008. In that role, he gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of player development, including player evaluation, skill development, the integration of new technology and information sources, staffing, and overall philosophy. Bloom later became Director, Baseball Operations in November of 2011 and following the 2014 season was promoted to Vice President, Baseball Operations where his responsibilities included oversight of personnel, domestic and international player development, international scouting, contract negotiations, salary arbitration, budgets, and strategic planning.
Bloom began his baseball career as a baseball operations intern with the San Diego Padres and as a legal/corporate partnerships intern with Major League Baseball.
A native of Philadelphia, PA, Bloom attended Yale University where he graduated in 2004 with a degree in Classics (Latin).
