You may have seen the note on our twitter account, but infielder Josh Wilson is up here with the team as it awaits medical results on Jack Wilson’s hamstring. Wilson received a phone call just after noon today and was told to be here in case his namesake had to go on the DL.
Wilson has had a busy 24 hours. He was playing in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Class AAA Tacoma yesterday. After some flight delays, he didn’t get back in to SeaTac until after 11 p.m. But Rainiers manager Daren Brown gave him a heads-up to wait by the phone today because he’d heard about Jack Wilson getting hurt.
“It’s a good thing he told me because we had an off-day today and I was supposed to go out and play golf,” he said. “I would have been out on a golf course with my phone turned off.”
As you can see from the post’s headline, former M’s assistant GM Jim Na has resigned.
This is a story Larry Stone and myself had been working on. Na had been the tem’s director of baseball administration. He apparently handed in his resignation letter last week and spent his final day on the job yesterday.
Na has also found another job in the Seattle area, though not in baseball.
Industry sources say there has been an additional shakeup in the team’s scouting ranks, with the decision not to renew the contract of western crosschecker Ron Tostenson. We are also told that special assignment/amateurt scout Tom Davis will be reassigned.
