Phillies hire Yankees’ Barber as amateur scouting director

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies have hired Brian Barber to be director of amateur scouting.

Barber spent the last 18 seasons with the New York Yankees. He was an area scout (2002-06), East Coast crosschecker (2007-09) and national crosschecker (2010-19). Crosscheckers are scouts who provide second opinions.

The Phillies announced the hiring Tuesday. The 46-year-old Barber replaced Johnny Almaraz, who stepped down but will remain with the organization.

And, if you don’t trust the crosschecker’s opinion, who do you contact for a third opinion?
