Jerry Krause is best known as general manager of the Michael Jordan-led Bulls dynasty, but he’s actually spent most of his career as a baseball scout and was the guy who recommended the White Sox trade for a Triple-A shortstop named Ozzie Guillen in 1984.
Krause has served as the White Sox’s director of international scouting for the past year, taking the job after two scouts were charged with skimming money from Latin America prospects, but Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that he’s leaving the organization to take a job with the Diamondbacks.
According to Gonzales he’ll serve as a special assistant to executive vice president of scouting and player development Jerry Dipoto in Arizona, working under new general manager Kevin Towers.
