The Mariners have hired Tim Kissner as their new director of international operations, a baseball source confirmed.
Kissner had been with the Cubs for the past two seasons as the team's West Coast crosschecker. Before that, Kissner had scouted for the Phillies since November 2000, including a stint as the team's Pacific Rim coordinator beginning after the 2008 season through 2010. Kissner also had scouted the Northwest and Southern California for the Phillies after starting as an area scout in North Florida, Alabama and Mississippi for the Indians in 1999-2000.
Earlier this month, the Mariners announced that Bob Engle, their former vice president of international scouting, had decided to leave the organization. The Mariners had also fired Latin American coordinator Patrick Guerrero, who has since been hired by the Dodgers with the same title.
