Seattle fires pro scouting director Fusco
The Seattle Mariners have fired director of pro scouting Carmen Fusco with three weeks remaining in the regular season.
The team confirmed Fusco's firing on Monday. KING-TV in Seattle first reported the move Sunday night citing unnamed sources.
Fusco was responsible for overseeing the scouting of the major league and minor league teams. The team did not announce a replacement.
Fusco is a longtime friend of Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik. The pair grew up in New Castle, Pa., and worked together in the Mets and Brewers organizations.
Fusco is the sixth member of the Mariners baseball staff to be fired this season, including manager Don Wakamatsu last month.
