The commissioner’s office said Monday that vice president of umpiring Mike Port, vice president of operations and administration Ed Burns and senior specialist of on-field operations Darryl Hamilton have been let go.

Hamilton is a former major league player and Port a former big league general manager.

Torre was hired Feb. 26 by Commissioner Bud Selig as executive vice president of baseball operations.
