Geaney named international scouting coordinator
The A’s have promoted Sam Geaney to the position of coordinator of international scouting, a role previously held by Dan Kantrovitz, who leaves after three years to become St. Louis’ new amateur scouting director.
Geaney, just 26, previously served as a coordinator in the scouting department and, before that, as a scouting assistant and video coordinator.
In an email on Wednesday, A’s assistant general manager David Forst said, “I have no doubt he will pick up right where Dan left off.”
Kantrovitz played a significant role when it came to acquiring international players, and the A’s are expected to continue their efforts in that area, especially in the midst of a rebuild.
