Clark to interview with the Nationals
Roy Clark, who has spent the past 11 years as the Braves director of scouting, will interview with the Nationals on Monday afternoon. Clark is expected to be interviewing to gain a similar role that would also provide him the tag of being an assistant general manager.
Widely regarded for his nose for talent, Clark has run each of the past 10 First-Year Player Drafts for the Braves. He joined the club as an area scout midway through the 1989 season and then served as both a scouting supervisor and national supervisor from 1995-99.
Throughout the summer, there has been speculation that Clark might part ways with the Braves. Many individuals within the baseball industry have felt he might have ended up with the Padres if Jerry DiPoto was cleared to leave the Diamondbacks and become San Diego’s general manager.
