Fri Jun 2903:52As baseball evolves, advance scouting largely turns to video
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Baltimore manager Buck Showalter receives regular calls from veteran, out-of-work scouts looking for jobs.Many are longtime baseball men who once hit the road to major league cities ahead of their clubs to offer detailed insight of upcoming opponents. Now, advance scouting for many teams has turned to technology: video from every angle and situation, and analytics."Advance scouting by humans is history," said Bay Area-based Mets scout Shooty Babitt, who also works as an analyst on Oakland Athletics broadcasts. "Thank goodness I'm a scout who evaluates talent. Advance guys prepare strategy."Showalter's Orioles don't have an advance scout working in the ballpark. Same goes for World Series champion Houston, Minnesota, the Angels, Oakland and others."I'd like to know how many clubs have a human being advance anymore," Showalter said.With the push of a button, a hitter can watch video of every 2-2 breaking pitch Giants ace Madison Bumgarner has tossed, or flame-thr...

Wed Jun 2702:21LEADING OFF: Mets GM Alderson steps down, Cain to DL
A look at what's happening around the majors today:STEPPING DOWNThe Mets march on in their difficult season a day after learning general manager Sandy Alderson had effectively stepped down because his cancer has returned. Officially, Alderson will take a leave of absence, but he said Tuesday that he was essentially ending his tenure both for his health and because he doesn't think he's been successful enough to continue. Assistant general manager John Ricco and special assistants J.P. Ricciardi and Omar Minaya will run the club's baseball operations in Alderson's absence. Minaya preceded Alderson as Mets general manager, and Ricciardi was GM of the Toronto Blue Jays from 2001-09.CAIN NOT ABLELorenzo Cain is missing the chance to face his former teammates this week due to a left groin strain.
