Major League Baseball is expected to announce tomorrow that longtime player and manager Joe Torre will be appointed to a major role in the commissioner's office as the executive vice president for baseball operations.

In the new role, Torre would oversee on-field operations, making him one of the top executives at MLB's offices in New York.

Torre, 70, retired as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers after last season following a three-year stint in which he won two National League West division titles. He had previously managed the Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees, whom he led to four World Series championships in a stellar 12-year run from 1996-2007.

Torre played 18 seasons in the majors, making nine All-Star teams and winning the 1971 National League MVP award.
