Leading today’s Morning Briefing: Nationals promote Eddie Longosz to head of player development
The Washington Nationals named Eddie Longosz as their new head of player development over the weekend. Longosz has been a member of the front office for over 13 years now and this is the latest promotion for the 37-year-old. He had previously served as a scouting assistant, and most recently was the director of scouting operations.
My take: Many Nationals fans were disappointed when the Nationals found their player development head internally. That disappointment is justified, as the Nationals have long struggled to develop anything meaningful from the drafts and international amateur free agency.
But from all reports, Longosz seems to be one of the brighter minds within the Nationals organization. Mike Rizzo said in a statement, “Beyond his support of our draft operations, his expertise in emerging technology and analytics will enhance our process and make us more efficient.” In a tweet from TalkNats, another person sang similar praises. This is one of those hires where we won’t know the results and outcomes for two to three seasons. Hopefully, when we revisit we sing those same praises.
