Rosenthal: Pirates dismiss Latin American scouting director after he took improper payment (Subscription)

The investigation showed that the Mexican team paid Gayo a form of a kickback several years ago for the sale of at least one player to the Pirates, sources said. The Pirates, after learning the results of baseball’s probe, informed Gayo on Monday that they would not renew his contract. Gayo, 55, still faces possible discipline from MLB.

Well, that sucks.
