The Astros have made another addition to their staff, hiring Marc Russo as an international crosschecker, Baseball America has learned.
Russo had been the international scouting director for the Angels since November 2010, but he was not retained. Russo had helped rebuild the Angels' infrastructure in Latin America after the team fired former international director Clay Daniel shortly before July 2, 2009 and cleaned out their international scouting department. Oz Ocampo, who had worked as an international baseball operations specialist for Major League Baseball, was hired two months ago as Houston's international director.
Earlier today, BA reported that Carlos Gomez will run the international scouting in Anaheim.
