Marlins to Hire Marc DelPiano Away From Pirates

Keith Law announced on Twitter Sunday night that the Miami Marlins will hire Marc DelPiano away from the Pirates. His current position with the team is Special Assistant to the General Manager. Jim Benedict, Doug Strange and Jax Robertson also hold that same role with the Pirates. DelPiano has been with the Pirates since December 3, 2008. He will take over a senior VP role with the Marlins, returning to an organization he worked for back in 2003.

DePiano was recently scouting Byung-Ho Park for the Pirates in Korea, and he was also instrumental in bringing in Jason Grilli, AJ Burnett and Russell Martin.
