SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres promoted former Arizona manager A.J. Hinch to vice president/assistant general manager on Friday.

Hinch, who was fired as the Diamondbacks’ manager on July 1, 2010, after just more than one year on the job, was hired by San Diego last September as vice president in charge of professional scouting.

Hinch was also one of three San Diego front office executives to have their contracts extended through the 2013 season on Friday, joining Fred Uhlman Jr. and Jason McLeod, who also hold the title of vice president/assistant GM.
