Lee MacPhail IV to be reassigned
During his teleconference announcing that Gary Rajsich as the Orioles new amateur scouting director, Orioles' executive vice president Dan Duquette said there has also been another change in his front office.
Pro scouting director Lee MacPhail IV has been reassigned within the scouting department. Duquette wasn't specific about duties, but the assumption is MacPhail will continue to scout for the club without administrative or supervising responsibilities.
"I’ll do whatever is needed. I am an Oriole," MacPhail said. "I'm happy to be here and I'll do whatever is asked."
MacPhail, the nephew of former club president Andy MacPhail, has held the position since October 2007.
Duquette said he was still working on the structure of his front office and it seems likely the club will not have a specific pro scouting director.
