KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals are promoting general manager Dayton Moore to club president.

The team is also elevating longtime assistant GM J.J. Picollo to GM.

The 54-year-old Moore presided over one of the most remarkable turnarounds in baseball history, leading them to consecutive World Series and the 2015 title.

Picollo has long been considered Moore's heir apparent in Kansas City.

The team is showing signs of another rebirth after a long rebuild.
