“My time with the Rays is something I will always cherish,” Feinstein said. “I’m grateful to have worked with incredibly talented people and to have shared in the Rays success. At the same time, I’m excited to return to the Bay Area and serve an organization that, like the Rays, is progressive and innovative in all aspects of its baseball operation.”
