The Mets have hired Adam Guttridge as their assistant GM of systematic development, SNY's Andy Martino confirmed.
Guttridge, who has a deep analytics background, began his career in baseball in 2005 with the Rockies. He then joined the Brewers, where he seved as Manager of Baseball Research and Development.
After working with the Brewers, Guttridge co-founded NEIFI (normalized empirical individual forecasting index), where he co-developed the Automated Prospect Model, which received an award from MIT.
He has also written for FanGraphs -- where a piece he cowrote on the future of technology in player development was published in 2016 -- and taught at NYU.
Shortly after being hired as GM, Brodie Van Wagenen spoke of his desire to beef up the Mets' analytics department -- one that had been one of the smallest in the majors.
