Farhan Zaidi reportedly isn't done making over the Giants' front office.
San Francisco reportedly hired new heads of their pro and amateur scouting departments, according to The Athletic's Andrew Baggarly. Zack Minasian will lead the pro scouting department, while Michael Holmes will lead the amateur scouting department.
#sfgiants have hired a new pro scouting director, sources tell @TheAthleticMLB : Zack Minasian, formerly a special advisor to the GM in Milwaukee. Started in baseball as an 11-year-old assistant to his father, Zack Sr., the longtime clubhouse attendant for the Texas Rangers.— Andrew Baggarly (@extrabaggs) December 8, 2018
Another important front-office hire for #sfgiants under Farhan Zaidi: Michael Holmes will replace John Barr as amateur scouting director and draft point person, sources tell @TheAthleticMLB. Holmes was assistant scouting director with the A's, where he has worked since 2004.— Andrew Baggarly (@extrabaggs) December 8, 2018
Minasian worked in a variety of roles in the Milwaukee Brewers' front office for nearly 15 years. Most recently, Minasian served as a special advisor focused on scouting. His father was the Rangers' clubhouse manager for over two decades, and his brother Perry is the Atlanta Braves' vice president of baseball operations and assistant general manager.
Holmes, meanwhile, worked alongside Zaidi in the A's front office from 2005-14. The man he'll replace, John Barr, worked in the Giants' front office for 11 seasons and oversaw amateur and international scouting.
Minasian and Holmes' reported hirings are the latest additions to the Giants' front office. Earlier this week, San Francisco reportedly entered discussions to add former Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi as a senior advisor/special assistant.
