The Red Sox may be on the verge of finding Dave Dombrowski's replacement.

The Sox have interviewed Rays Vice-President of Baseball Operations Chaim Bloom for the job of their next chief decision-maker when it comes to baseball matters. The 36-year-old has been working hand in hand with Tampa Bay GM Erik Neander to oversee all functions of baseball operations for the Rays since 2016.

Bloom has been with the Rays for 15 years, taking the role of Director of Baseball Operations in 2011 before moving up to one of the top spots in the Tampa Bay front office when then-President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman moved on to the Dodgers in 2014.

Bloom was the runner-up for the Mets' general manager position last offseason, having also been considered previously by the Giants.

A Philadelphia native Bloom graduated from Yale University in 2004 with a degree in classics (Latin).
