Minnesota Twins general manager Thad Levine could be on the move as his name has been connected to the Boston Red Sox, who are in search of a new baseball boss after Chain Bloom's exit as the team's chief baseball officer. 

Rob Bradford of WEEI in Boston was the first to link Levine to the Red Sox, though KSTP-TV reporter Darren Wolfson, based in the Twin Cities, has since reported that he's hearing "the Red Sox have reached out and have been granted permission to speak with Thad Levine."

Per Bradbord, Levine has "elicited mutual interest" in the job. He also cited sources in his report that allegedly "have identified Levine as someone who is well-versed in utilizing information, but wouldn't be afraid to step outside the analytical models in order to execute targeted acquisitions."

"He's an intriguing guy because he was a guy that actually was in line to become the next Philadelphia Phillies boss," Bradford said on his podcast. "Thad decided that ... he was going to prioritize his family and not uproot his family and not go down that road."

Bradford adds that "it seems like Thad might be more open to entertaining the idea of taking a job in another organization."

Levine has been with the Twins, working alongside Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey, since 2016.
