The times keep changing for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Kevin Towers is the new general manager; former interim GM Jerry DiPoto is now in charge of both scouting and player development.
DiPoto, the club's senior vice president for scouting and player development, told Baseball America this week that he was seeking a replacement for amateur scouting director Tom Allison, who has been offered a new position in the organization but had yet to accept. Friday, the D-backs announced Rico Brogna, who managed the organization's Double-A Mobile affiliate this year, will become the farm director, replacing Mike Berger, who had been on the job since June 2009. That's when A.J. Hinch was moved from farm director to major league manager.
Berger has spent more than 30 years in the game and was reassigned to a scouting role in the organization, according to a press release.
