Zduriencik hires a scout, not a manager

General manager Jack Zduriencik, whose background in scouting helped get him his job, put another scout in place with the Seattle Mariners.

Mike Cadahia 54, comes aboard as an amateur scouting specialist, and will leap immediately into evaluating players who might be selected in June - when teh Mariners have the second pick in the naion.

For the last six years, Cadahia scouted for the Florida Marlins, and back in 1999 worked in the Seattle front office as the scouting director for Latin America.

Cadahia left Seattle shoftly after new-GM Pat Gillick's arrival to work for the Blue Jays.
