The Red Sox are working toward cleaning out their front office by firing Dave Dombrowski and letting go of executive Frank Wren and scout Eddie Bane, and now it appears they've lost a long-time scout to Arizona.
Hazen is a part of Theo Epstein's tree of baseball executives, and Nightengale notes that much of the Diamondbacks' staff has Boston ties and raves about Hughes' scouting ability.
The Red Sox hired Hughes in 2012 and he's been with the club ever since. He also had past stops with the Cubs, Yankees, Expos, Marlins, Rockies and Reds. Losing him will surely hurt the Red Sox moving forward.
