MLB Hires Seven New Umpires, Names a Director of Instant Replay

MLB announced that seven umpires have been named to the full-time Major League Umpiring staff. In addition, as another part of this season’s expansion of instant replay, the Office of the Commissioner has appointed Justin Klemm as Director of Instant Replay.

Klemm, a former minor league umpire and minor league umpire administrator, will report to Peter Woodfork, MLB’s Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations, which I assume means Joe Torre will be relieved of even more uncomfortable press conferences when things go awry. Klemm will be based at the headquarters of MLB Advanced Media, which will serve as the Replay Command Center.

Two additional four-man umpiring crews will be hired and umpires will be rotated through New York to review video feeds. Every ballpark will have a designated communication location near home plate. There, the crew chief and at least one other Major League umpire will have access to a hard-wired headset connected to the Replay Command Center. The decision of the replay official in New York will be final.

Here is the rundown of the seven new MLB umpires, all of whom have had callups as replacement / fill-ins in the past.

  • Jordan Baker - Baker, 32, has been an umpire in the Minor Leagues since the 2005 season. In 2013, he worked in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. Baker worked his first game in the Majors on June 24, 2012 and overall, he has been a part of 199 regular season Major League games.

  • Lance Barrett – Barrett, 29, has been a Minor League umpire since 2003. He is now the youngest full-time Major League Umpire. In 2013, he worked in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. Barrett debuted in the Majors on October 1, 2010 and he has worked 237 big-league games.

  • Cory Blaser
    – Blaser, 32, has been an umpire in the Minor Leagues since the 2002 season. In 2013, he worked in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. Blaser made his Major League debut on April 24, 2010 and he has worked 346 Major League games.

  • Mike Estabrook – Estabrook, 37, has umpired professionally since 1999. In 2013, he was on the staff of the Triple-A International League. Estabrook’s first Major League game was on May 7, 2006, and he has been assigned to 698 Major League games.

  • Mike Muchlinski – Muchlinski, 36, has been a Minor League umpire since 1999. In 2013, he worked in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. Muchlinski made his Major League debut on April 24, 2006, and he has worked 569 Major League games.

  • David Rackley
    – Rackley, 32, has been an umpire in the Minor Leagues since the 2001 season. In 2013, he was on the staff of the Triple-A International League. Rackley had his first Major League game on August 13, 2010, and he has been on the field for 165 Major League games overall.

  • D.J. Reyburn – Reyburn, 37, has umpired in the Minors since 2000. In 2013, he worked in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. He has worked 440 Major League games since his debut on June 10, 2008.

Appointment of Crew Chiefs

Each year the Office of the Commissioner shall appoint an umpire to act as the Crew Chief for each of the crews formed for the championship season. While the Office of the Commissioner may consider seniority along with other factors that it may deem appropriate when exercising its appointment discretion, seniority shall not control in the Office of the Commissioner's choice of Crew Chiefs. Picture this, the Crew Chief would act like a cheap web site hosting (to put it in internet terms), he would regulate his crew but give them freedom to make the correct choices.
The Crew Chief shall coordinate and direct his crew's compliance with the Office of the Commissioner's rules and policies. Other Crew Chief responsibilities include: leading periodic discussions and reviews of situations, plays and rules with his crew; generally directing the work of the other umpires on the crew, with particular emphasis on uniformity in dealing with unique situations; assigning responsibilities for maintaining time limits during the game; ensuring the timely filing of all required crew reports for incidents such as ejections, brawls and protested games; and reporting to the Office of Commissioner any irregularity in field conditions at any ballpark.

2013 MLB Umpire Crews

Major League Baseball announced the changes to the Major League Umpiring staff for the 2013 regular season. The changes include three new crew chiefs and three new full-time Major League Umpires.

The three new crew chiefs are veteran Major League Umpires Jim Joyce (25 years), Ted Barrett (16 years) and Fieldin Culbreth (16 years). Barrett, 47, and Culbreth, 49, are now the youngest crew chiefs on the Major League staff. Barrett, who recently completed his Ph.D. in theology, has worked two World Series (2007, 2011), five League Championship Series, seven Division Series and one All-Star Game (2007) in his career. He is the only umpire in history to be the home plate umpire in two perfect games, among the three no-hitters he has worked overall (David Cone's 1999 perfect game, Ervin Santana's 2011 no-hitter and Matt Cain's 2012 perfect game). Culbreth, a former college baseball player at UNC-Charlotte, has been assigned to two World Series (2008, 2012), six LCS, five Division Series and one Midsummer Classic (2006). Joyce, 57, has worked two World Series (1999, 2001), four LCS, eight Division Series and three All-Star Games (1994, 2001, 2012).
Barrett, Culbreth and Joyce replace retired crew chiefs Derryl Cousins, Ed Rapuano and Tim Tschida.

The three new members of the full-time Major League Umpiring staff will be Vic Carapazza, Manny Gonzalez and Alan Porter.
The 33-year-old Carapazza, who has worked in both Triple-A leagues, has been a Minor League Umpire since 2003. He has been assigned to Major League Spring Training since 2010 and has worked more than 300 regular season games since then as a call-up umpire at the Major League level.
Gonzalez, 33, becomes the first full-time Venezuelan Major League Umpire in Major League history. He has umpired professionally since 2002, including in the Triple-A International League, and has worked Major League Spring Training since 2010. He has been on the field for 175 regular season games since becoming a fill-in umpire in the Majors. Porter, 35, has been a Minor League Umpire since 2002 and has worked Major League Spring Training since 2009. The former International League umpire has 300 games of regular season experience as a Major League call-up umpire since 2010.

2011 MLB Umpire Crews

2011 Umpire Crews

According to a poll conducted by Sports Illustrated and a report from CBS Sports, big leaguers voted Jim Joyce the best umpire in the Major Leagues -- by a wide margin. He took 35 percent of the vote, followed by Tim McClelland (18 percent), Jim Wolf (7 percent), Laz Diaz (6 percent) and Joe West (5 percent). According to the CBS report, the poll was conducted in 2011 Spring Training and surveyed 237 players. Joyce gained notoriety and widespread publicity when he missed a call at first base in June of last season, costing Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game. Joyce received just as much attention following the incident for the manner in which he accepted responsibility, and the two moved forward. They've since written a book together on the subject.

ESPN also conducted a similar poll in 2010, asking players about the best and worst umpires in the game (it was done after the Galarraga incident) and, again, Joyce was voted best in baseball.

Injured Umpires

Recently, we have had a few individuals bringing up the fact many umpires have suffered injury and are not on the field.Mark Wegner injured his calf in May and had what was likely season-ending surgery. Mike Muchlinksi is currently filling in for Wegner. Unfortunately, the injury bug continues to strike. A look at some of these injuries:

The July 4th Detroit Tigers broadcast reported that Jim Joyce is out for the season with a knee injury. Joyce had not umpired since June 9th. John Tumpane has received the fill-in role for Joyce.

All-Star Game second base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt has not umpired since June 26th due to a head injury he suffered in that day in a game between the Indians and Giants. Wendelstedt took a ball off the side of the mask and continued the inning behind the plate, but after being evaluated by a trainer left.

Paul Schrieber has not umpired since May 10th. He has been out with an undisclosed injury. Schrieber missed significant time in 2010 due to injury. Angel Campos has largely filled the duties for Schrieber in his absence.

Lance Barksdale has been missing in action since June 5th. Filling in at times for Barksdale is Alan Porter.

Paul Nauert has been out since June 12th, and since has had his spot filled by Vic Carapazza.

John Hirschbeck has also been out since June 12th, his spot has been filled in by various umpires due to his Crew Chief status. Wally Bell has served as acting crew chief at times in Hirschbeck's absence.

Tim Tschida has not umpired since June 16th, with Mike Estabrook filling the vacant spot on his crew. Jeff Nelson has filled in as acting crew chief.

This is in addition to Todd Tichenor filling in all year for the injured Bill Hohn.

2011 Minor League Call-Up Umpires
The following Minor League umpires worked the 2011 ML Spring Training and can be called up for Major League duty during the season if needed.

2010 MLB Umpire Crews
April 20, 2010

Major League Baseball completed its umpiring lineup for the 2010 season with the promotion of four Triple-A arbiters and the appointment of four new crew chiefs. Rob Drake, Chad Fairchild, James Hoye and Adrian Johnson -- who among them have 57 years of professional umpiring experience and in recent years have worked Major League games as Triple-A call up fill-ins -- were appointed to big league crews. Chosen as new crew chiefs were Brian Gorman, Tom Hallion, Jeff Kellogg and Jerry Layne. The quartet has a shared Major League experience of 73 seasons of umpiring. The four new umpires are taking the places of four who have recently retired following long and distinguished careers, which included terms as crew chiefs: Randy Marsh, Charlie Reliford, Ed Montague and Rick Reed.
Marsh and Reliford continue as liaisons between MLB and its umpires, assuming new roles as umpire supervisors.
