General Manager of Baltimore
Michael Elias is a baseball executive from the United States who was born on December 28, 1982. He is the Major League Baseball’s Baltimore Orioles’ executive vice president and general manager (MLB).
Elias is a graduate of Alexandria, Virginia’s Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, where he was born. He graduated from Yale University in 2006. He was a pitcher for the Yale Bulldogs in collegiate baseball. Elias needed surgery to repair a torn labrum after his second season.
Elias joined the St. Louis Cardinals’ scouting staff in 2007 after graduating from Yale. In 2011, when the Houston Astros recruited Jeff Luhnow, a former Cardinals general manager, as their director of amateur scouting, Elias moved to Houston with him. Carlos Correa was chosen by the Astros in the 2012 MLB draft, thanks to Elias.
The Astros promoted Elias to assistant general manager after David Stearns was hired as general manager by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2016. Player development and lower league operations were assigned to him.
The Baltimore Orioles hired Elias as their general manager and executive vice president on November 16, 2018.
