NEW YORK (AP) -- Joe Torre has returned to the job of Major League Baseball's executive vice president for baseball operations less than three months after he resigned the post to join a group trying to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Commissioner Bud Selig made the announcement in a release Friday.

Torre managed the Dodgers from 2008-10, then retired and joined MLB in February 2011 as a top aide to Selig. He resigned Jan. 4 to be part of a group headed by real estate developer Rick Caruso.

Torre's group dropped out of the bidding for the bankrupt ballclub Feb. 23 because current owner Frank McCourt won't include in the sale the parking lots outside the stadium.

Senior Vice Presidents Kim Ng, Joe Garagiola, Jr., and Peter Woodfork, all of whom reported to Torre, shared the job that was left vacant after Torre left.
