Tigers bring back Scott Bream as director of pro scouting

The Detroit Tigers added veteran scout Scott Bream as director of pro scouting on Monday to solidify their front office.

After spending more than a decade in Detroit as a scout, Scott Bream was officially brought back to the Tigers' organization as director of player scouting on Monday, as reported by George Sipple of The Detroit Free Press.

A former minor-league player who had a short stint with Triple-A Toledo, Bream first joined the Tigers as a scout in 1999 and was quickly named assistant general manager before the 2002 season. Though he was lured away by the San Diego Padres two years ago, Tigers' president and general manager Dave Dombrowski is excited to have Bream back in Motown in a top role.

"He's a very good evaluator of talent, a very good baseball person," Dombrowski said. "We're very happy have him back."

Bream is expected to assist the coordination of Detroit's entire MLB scouting staff, as well as take on individual scouting assignments across both leagues. With Scott Reid, the team's vice president of player personnel, expected to relinquish some of his duties in the coming seasons, Bream figures to be a significant piece of the front office going forward.
