Jed Hoyer Poaches Head of Scouting Jason McLeod

New, 18 comments

According to a Peter Gammons tweet, the Red Sox head of scouting, Jason McLeod, is off to San Diego to join Jed Hoyer as his assistant GM.

While it's no surprise that Hoyer would take some front office talent with him when he left, the loss of McLeod is a significant one. McLeod was brought in by Theo Epstein in 2003 to help realize his $100 million player development machine. McLeod did just that, leading to some of the Sox farm system's most productive years.

Good luck in San Diego, Jason. You'll be sorely missed.
