CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have terminated the employment of three members of the club's Latin American scouting staff, including David Wilder, the team's Senior Director of Player Personnel.
Wilder, who had supervised the club's Latin American operations since the fall of 2004, full-time scout Victor Mateo and part-time scout Domingo Toribio were dismissed for actions in Latin America that were violations of club policy and standards.
The terminations resulted from findings of a two-month investigation conducted by Major League Baseball's Department of Investigations. The White Sox had requested Major League Baseball's independent investigation of the club's Latin American scouting operations once questions were raised internally.
Findings from Major League Baseball's investigations have been turned over to Federal authorities, and the White Sox will not make any further comment on the matter until the conclusion of the investigations.
