Last year MLB posted this job description:
Complete valuation analysis of player contracts and other analysis related to baseball labor markets
Monitor trends in Club and Player strategy to assist in setting on-field policy and rule changes
Oversee all duties related to Uniform Employee Contracts and the Employee Permissions process
Serve as business customer to Commissioner’s Office baseball IT systems, ensuring data accuracy across baseball applications, managing vendors and assisting to set departmental IT strategy
Provide analytical support to Clubs in negotiations and hearings with salary arbitration-eligible players
Other projects as assigned by Senior Director, League Economics & Strategy.
As I said at the time, you might as well call the job “Director of Collusion.”
