ANAHEIM -- The Angels recently dismissed pro scouts Brad Sloan and Willie Fraser.
Fraser, an ex-pitcher, was drafted by the Angels with the 15th overall selection in 1985, then spent the first five of his eight seasons in the Majors with the club and had been a scout in the organization the last two years. Sloan had been with the club for at least the last eight years.
The dismissals of Sloan and Fraser continues a front-office restructuring by general manager Jerry Dipoto, who in his first year brought in two new assistant GMs (Scott Servais and Matt Klentak), a new director of pro scouting (Hal Morris) and two new special-assignment scouts (Larry Corrigan and Tim Schmidt), among others.
Sloan and Fraser were informed their contracts would not be renewed last week.
