Mariners make two scouting department moves
Two moves announced Thursday by the Mariners involving their scouting department:
Mark Lummus, previously the club’s Midwest Supervisor, has been promoted to National Cross Checker. Lummus, 39, has been in the Mariners scouting department the past 12 years.
In his new post, he’ll assist scouting director Tom McNamara in evaluations of top players leading up to the amateur draft.
The Mariners also hired Jeremy Booth, 35, to serve as Midwest Supervisor. Booth had been working as an area scout for the Brewers for the past three years. He previously spent a year in the Twins scouting department after playing professionally in the Rays and Brewers systems.
