Johnny Almaraz is also resigning. From Hal McCoy:
Johnny Almaraz, director of player development/international operations, turned in his resignation and the Reds are expected to announce it today.
At the end of last season, highly regarded senior special assistant Larry Barton Jr. quit after 39 years in the Reds' organization.
Both Barton and Almaraz were unhappy that their input with new General Manager Wayne Krivsky was minimal and they were out of the loop.
When Barton's resignation came to light during baseball winter meetings in Orlando last week, Almaraz indicated to the Dayton Daily News that he, too, was not happy and that he might follow Barton's lead.
"I'm not included in any of the discussions and, in fact, when I walked into the suite during the winter meetings Wayne and his people would lower their voices to a whisper or take their discussions into the bedroom," Almaraz said.
