Ruben Amaro Jr Wikipedia
He belongs to a family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Ruben is a former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies front office executive who joined the MLB Network as Broadcast Analyst. According to an MLB Network release, Amaro has lately contributed to NBC Sports Philadelphia as a Phillies analyst, a role he will continue this season.
He was with the Mets from 2018-2019, operating as a first base coach before he was shifted to the front office as a special advisor. Amaro was sacked as general manager of the Phillies in 2015. He was appointed as an assistant right after the Phillies won the 2008 World Series, then was in control for a seven-year run in which the franchise sunk a little each season — a run that ended with the 54-86 club owning the worst record in baseball late into the 2015 season.
Amaro also played in the majors for eight years, including stops with the Philadelphia, Los Angeles Angels, and Cleveland. Following his time with the Phillies, Amaro transitioned to the field as the Boston Red Sox’s first base trainer in 2016 and 2017.
