Pirates won't renew Latin scouting director's contract

(TSX / STATS) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates announced Wednesday that they will not be renewing the contract of Rene Gayo, their director of Latin American scouting.

"We informed Rene that we would not be renewing his contract upon its expiration next month and thanked him for his efforts on behalf of the Pirates," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said in a statement. "As an organization, we concluded that we needed to move in a new and different direction with our Latin American scouting leadership. We will immediately begin an exhaustive search aimed at securing the very best leader for our Latin American scouting operations."

Gayo, who is responsible for finding starting outfielders Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco, among others, was let go because of his alleged involvement in a financial issue related to a kickback from a Mexican Summer League team.
