General manager Kim Ng is leaving the Miami Marlins after three seasons, the team announced Monday.
Marlins principal owner Bruce Sherman said in a statement that the club exercised its team option for Ng to return next season, but she declined her mutual option.
“We thank Kim for her contributions during her time with our organization and wish her and her family well,” Sherman said, according to Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald.
Ng became the first female GM of a major men’s North American sports team when she was hired prior to the 2021 season.
The Marlins improved their regular-season winning percentage in each of the last two seasons, culminating in an 84-78 record and a postseason berth this season.
“We will immediately begin a thorough and extensive search for new leadership as we plan to continue to invest in the Marlins organization both on and off the field,” Sherman added. “We are committed to our fans and the South Florida community and look to build off the momentum of the great progress of this year.”
