Two Blue Jays Staffers Booted by New Regime
The new broom continues to sweep clean in the Blue Jays front office.
The latest to be shown the door by president and chief executive officer Mark Shapiro are scouting director Brian Parker and national crosschecker Blake Davis.
As the minor and major-league seasons come to a close, more dismissals are expected as Shaprio and GM Ross Atkins continue to try to put their stamp on the organization.
Parker, who came on board with the Jays as a pro scout in 2009, has been the top man in the amateur scouting department since 2012, overseeing all the drafts since then.
Despite having the farm system decimated by the trades that brought Josh Donaldson, David Price, and Troy Tulowitzki in 2015, Parker leaves behind some organizational depth that includes pitchers Conner Green, Sean-Reid Foley, Jon Harris, Justin Maese and Tim Mayza. Among position players, powerful first baseman Rowdy Tellez, and catcher Max Pentecost still have high-end value.
