Rangers field coordinator Jayce Tingler is likely to be moved to the club’s front office this winter to help fill the void left by Thad Levine.

Levine, a Rangers’ assistant general manager, left to become the GM of the Minnesota Twins last week. He had been with the club since 2005 worked closely with Rangers’ GM Jon Daniels in various capacities.

Tingler is with Daniels and other club executives at the GM Meetings this week at the Omni Resort.

“We’re looking at different ways to reorganize with Thad leaving,” Daniels said. “One option involves Jayce moving into a front-office role.”

Daniels said the club is still working through how to restructure the front office.

Tingler, who turns 36 on Nov. 28, has been the major league field coordinator the past two seasons. He was the Rangers’ minor league coordinator for three years prior to that. After a four-year minor league career Tingler became the manager of the Rangers’ Dominican Summer League affiliate in 2007. He managed the Rangers’ Arizona Rookie League team in 2010 and was made a roving instructor in 2011.
