The makeover of the Mets continues as the club dismissed amateur scouting director Rudy Terrasas on Saturday.
New general manager Sandy Alderson has hired Paul DePodesta as vice president for scouting and player development. DePodesta is closely associated by most with the Athletics organization, but when he was GM of the Dodgers, DePodesta inherited Logan White as his scouting director and kept him in that post, rather than making a change.
In New York, though, DePodesta will be hiring a new top amateur scout. Terrasas had served in that post since 2006. In that time, the Mets picked up such players as 2008 first-rounder Ike Davis and 2006 15th-rounder Daniel Murphy, while rarely going above-slot for top talent. Terrasas was pleased with the team's pitching haul in the 2010 draft, most notably first-rounder Matt Harvey and 24th-rounder Erik Goeddel, both of whom the Mets went over slot to sign.
