Assistant Brewers scouting director Ray Montgomery is leaving the team to become the Arizona D-backs’ amateur scouting director, the Arizona Republic reported Wednesday night.
Montgomery spent eight seasons in Milwaukee’s organization including the past two as scouting director Bruce Seid’s top aide. He originally joined the Brewers as an area scout for South Texas and Louisiana in December 2002, and was responsible for the scouting and signing second baseman Rickie Weeks in 2003.
In Arizona, Montgomery replaces Tom Allison, another former Brewers scout. According to the Republic, the D-backs plan to officially introduce Montgomery next week.
The D-backs earlier this week added another man with Brewers ties in former second baseman Eric Young, who is joining Arizona as first base coach.
