M's press release noted that Looper (VP for Player Development) "declined an opportunity to stay" with the org.
The opportunity was apparently becoming a scout on the pro side within the M's. We'll have to see who fills the vacancy at VP. The director of player development, Greg Hunter, may be a candidate, but I'd guess Zduriencik may have others in mind for the gig.
I like this move. What do you think?
