New Angels GM Jerry Dipoto begins to fill front office positions
Reached by phone at his home in Fort Myers, Fla., Corrigan said he and Dipoto are still in the process of structuring his job description and that he wasn't necessarily taking the place of long-time special assistant Gary Sutherland, who was the team's director of pro scouting for 12 years until being let go after the season.
Corrigan, 61, worked one year for the Oakland Athletics, 21 years for the Minnesota Twins and the last four years with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has been an amateur scout, a professional scout, a West Coast supervisor, a scouting director and a special assignment scout and an on-field coordinator.
Dipoto, the former Arizona executive who was officially named GM on Saturday, is in the process of hiring an assistant GM, a farm director and several scouts. Tory Hernandez, the team's manager of baseball operations, could be a candidate for assistant GM.
