Washington Nationals news & notes: Nats’ scouting dept. changes; CJ Abrams gets 40th stolen base + more...

Washington Post writer Jesse Dougherty first reported last week on the news, “[VP and Assistant GM] Johnny DiPuglia resigned from his role as the Washington Nationals’ international scouting director,” 15 years after GM Mike Rizzo brought the long-time scout into the organization the same year Rizzo was named the Nats’ full-time General Manager.

“The reason for his resignation was not immediately known or provided by the team,” the WaPost writer noted. “DiPuglia declined further comment.”

In his weekly visit with 106.7 the FAN in D.C.’s Sports Junkies on Wednesday, Rizzo, who’d initially declined to comment for the Post’s story, said the reports on the decision to part ways being mutual were accurate.
