CINCINNATI (AP) The Reds hired former Arizona general manager Kevin Towers as a special assistant for player personnel on Tuesday.
He replaces Bob Miller, who spent nine seasons with the Reds, most recently as vice president and assistant general manager to Walt Jocketty. Miller was hired by the Nationals as assistant general manager earlier this month.
The Reds also hired Jeff Schugel as a special assistant for pro scouting. Schugel was a special assistant with the Braves last season. He also has worked with the Twins, Rockies, Dodgers and Angels during a 31-year career.
