The Astros lost a long-time front office member

Within Mark Berman's piece on Happ's agreement, we get this note:

Meanwhile, the club has no comment on the departure of Charlie Norton, the Astros director of baseball research and analysis.

Norton is the second long-time Astros employee to leave in as many weeks.

I had never heard of Charlie Norton, but he had been with the Astros since 2002, and in his current position since 2009. Interesante.
