ATLANTA — Tony DeMacio has been promoted to the Atlanta Braves’ director of scouting.
DeMacio got his new position on Wednesday. He replaces Roy Clark, who left Atlanta to become the Washington Nationals’ assistant general manager and vice president of player personnel.
DeMacio began to work as an area scout for Atlanta in 1983. The first player he signed for the Braves was two-time Cy Young Award winner Tom Glavine in 1984. The last player he signed was Chipper Jones in 1990.
He was scouting director for Baltimore from 1999-2004 and has worked in the scouting departments for Cleveland (1991-94), the Chicago Cubs (1995-98) and Pittsburgh (2005-06).
DeMacio returned to the Braves as a special assistant in 2006.
