Seid confirms: Montgomery on the move

Brewers amateur scouting director Bruce Seid confirmed today that the team is losing another of its top scouts. Assistant scouting director Ray Montgomery is leaving the Brewers to become the D-backs’ amateur scouting director.

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.
“Ray has been a strong and successful part of this organization and we wish him well,” Seid said. “My goal is to continue to train, develop and promote our own scouts and also be open to pursuing others.”
In Arizona, Montgomery will replace Tom Allison, another former Brewers scout.
The move was first reported Wednesday night by the Arizona Republic and confirmed to by a baseball official. The D-backs were not available to comment.
Seid, Montgomery, Allison and Astros scouting director Bobby Heck all once worked under the Brewers’ highly regarded former scouting director Jack Zduriencik, who is now the general manager in Seattle.
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.
