Nats Make Additions to Front Office; Managerial Decision Is on Hold – The Post
Nationals continue to rework front office – The Wash. Times
I’ve been busy at work and not feeling too well, so I’ve fallen behind on my blogging.
GM Mike Rizzo’s Nationals front office now looks like this:
Roy Clark, vice president of player personnel, formerly of the Atlanta Braves
Johnny DiPuglia, director of Latin American operations, formerly of the Boston Red Sox
Doug Harris, director of player development, formerly of the Cleveland Indians
Kris Kline, scouting director, promoted by the Washington Nationals
Also, Bobby Henley has been named the Minor League field coordinator (nationals.com)
There is still no word on who the next manager will be, though speculation points to Don Mattingly as a candidate and he’s still busy in the playoffs with the Los Angeles Dodgers, though perhaps not for much longer. Interim manager Jim Riggleman is still a candidate.
