White dismissed by Nationals
Former Major Leaguer Devon White told MLB.com that he was dismissed as the Nationals’ outfield and baserunning coordinator. He was given the news Thursday by farm director Doug Harris. No reason was given as to why White is no longer working for the Nationals.
White didn’t express any bitterness toward the organization and hopes to work in baseball in the near future. Besides working in the Minor Leagues, White sometimes worked on the Major League side, helping outfielders such as Lastings Milledge and Elijah Dukes.
After the 2008 season, Washington offered White the first-base coaching job, but he turned it down.
