First Bobby Heck, then Brad Mills. Now Brian McTaggart is reporting that Ricky Bennett and four scouts will not be returning to the Astros.

“We’re looking top to bottom at the pro scouting department, and we’re going to be restructuring it, and part of the restructuring came with some personnel changes.”

These latest four join for other scouts to not be retained by the Astros for 2013, including the two scouts who signed George Springer and Carlos Correa, the last two 1st Round picks by the Astros.

Jack Lind
Bob Rossi - hired in 2009.
Scipio Spinks - drafted by the Astros in 1966, was just sent to Sugar Land to watch Clemens pitch
