Early Life

Minasian was raised in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex of Texas, where he became involved in baseball when he was eight years old as a batboy for the Texas Rangers. His father, Zack, also worked with the team as an assistant clubhouse manager. Minasian played baseball as well while attending Lamar High School, and the University of Texas at Arlington.[3]

In 2009, Minasian was hired as a scout by the Toronto Blue Jays. He spent six of his nine seasons in Toronto as the director of pro scouting. In his final two seasons with the team, the Blue Jays made back-to-back trips to the American League Championship Series.[6]

Following his departure from the Blue Jays, Minasian was hired by the Atlanta Braves in September 2017. He served as an assistant general manager and as vice president of baseball operations under Alex Anthopoulos. Minasian had previously worked with Anthopoulos in Toronto.[7] The Braves won the National League East in each of Minasian's three seasons, reaching the National League Championship Series in October 2020.

In November 2020, following the firing of Billy Eppler, Minasian was named the general manager of the Los Angeles Angels. He signed a four-year contract.[8]
