The Orioles have hired Eve Rosenbaum to the newly created position of director of baseball development.

The news was reported by The Athletic and confirmed by an industry source.

Rosenbaum comes from the Houston Astros, where she worked with Executive Vice President/General Manager Mike Elias.

The Bethesda native, who attended Walt Whitman High School and graduated from Harvard in 2012, spent nearly five years with the Astros and had been Houston’s director of international scouting since August 2017.

Rosenbaum joins Sig Mejdal and Chris Holt, whom Elias brought with him from the Astros when he was hired a year ago. Mejdal oversees analytics as assistant general manager. Holt serves as the club’s director of pitching, another newly created position.

Rosenbaum will be the highest-ranking woman in the Orioles’ baseball operations department. Last year, Sarah Gelles, who headed up the Orioles’ analytics department before Elias’ arrival, left the team to join the Astros.

Before joining the Astros, the 29-year-old Rosenbaum worked for the NFL for nearly three years.

At Harvard, she played softball and had internships with Major League Baseball and the Boston Red Sox.

    Good hire. Along with Mike Elias, she played a role in identifying and signing Jose Altuve when they were involved with international scouting with the Astros. Hopefully the Orioles can scout, sign, and develop players like that in the future.

    29 years old. I picked the wrong profession, and apparently the wrong college.

      Agree that 29 sounds pretty young for such a position … but on the other hand, the more traditional older guys that ran Orioles’ player development for the past two decades didn’t have such a great track record.

    My only comment/question is … “Who on the BB.com staff, chose to use that particular picture of Elias today”?

      Guilty. If you have one of Eve Rosenbaum, please forward it.

      There are photos on the web, but sites don’t necessarily have the rights to those. We have a photographer, and her excellent work isn’t available for others to use without permission.

    Anyone else notice how much negative publicity the Astros have been getting? Maybe we should hire from other organizations, not quite the shiny great turn around franchise they were portrayed as…go O’s…
