Krall said, "I appreciate the opportunity the Reds are giving me. I look forward to the added responsibility in helping us realize our goals.”

The 2018 season is Krall's 16th in the organization. He was hired by the Reds in 2003 to oversee the team’s advance scouting preparation.

In 2008, he was promoted to Assistant Director of Baseball Operations, a position he held until 2013, when he was promoted to Assistant Director of Baseball Operations. In 2014, Krall became Senior Director of Baseball Operations and served in that capacity until he was promoted to Assistant GM in November 2015.

During the 2001 and 2002 seasons, Krall worked for the Oakland Athletics in various departments, including baseball operations. He joined the A's after an internship with the New Jersey Cardinals of the New York-Penn League.
