The Nationals lost their scouting director when Dana Brown took a position with the Blue Jays, becoming a special assistant to new general manager Alex Anthopoulos.
The Nats added a scouting director Tuesday as well, but Roy Clark isn’t coming to Washington as a lateral move. He left his post as the Braves’ scouting director, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, to become assistant general manager with the Nats under Mike Rizzo. The AJC reports Clark’s duties will include "overseeing player development and all scouting departments, including international scouting."
Industry sources indicated to BA that the Braves planned on promoting special assignment scout Tony DeMacio to replace Clark. DeMacio served as the Orioles’ scouting director from 1999-2004, and was a scout with the Braves from 1983-1991, signing such players as Tom Glavine and Chipper Jones.
