Kris Kline becomes scouting director
The Nationals have decided that Kris Kline will be their scouting director, replacing Dana Brown, who is now the Blue Jays’ special assistant to the general manager.
An announcement regarding Kline is expected to be made sometime on Thursday.
The news comes less than a day after Roy Clark told the Braves he was going to join the Nationals as assistant general manager.
Together, Clark, Kline and general manager Mike Rizzo will be the go-to guys regarding the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.
This past season, Kline was the team’s assistant scouting director and national crosschecker.
Kline and Rizzo were not available for comment.
