 CHICAGO (AP) -Duane Shaffer was fired Friday as senior director of amateur scouting for the Chicago White Sox after 35 seasons with the team.
``It was recognized that we needed to head in a different direction. I take full responsibility for our shortcomings over the years in that area,'' general manager Ken Williams said.
``This is an overall assessment in our player development and our scouting areas and at the major league level, that we are looking at ourselves in the mirror and making the necessary adjustments we feel are appropriate to continue to get better.''
Chicago began Friday 10 games under .500 for the first time since 2001. They White Sox have had little success dipping into their minor league system for help just two years after winning the World Series.
Shaffer served as a player, coach, roving instructor, manager, scout, scouting supervisor and scouting director. He supervised the team's draft picks from 1991-2007. A pitcher, Shaffer was chosen by the White Sox in the 11th round of the 1969 amateur draft.
