Didier, Queen named advisors by Jays

|
TORONTO -- Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos added a pair of senior advisors to his player development staff on Monday, continuing his retooling of the organization's front office.

Mel Didier and Mel Queen were both named to the position of senior advisor under Anthopoulos, who assumed general manager duties for the Blue Jays at the end of the regular season. Didier brings 56 years of scouting experience and Queen has spent 31 years in baseball as a coach, manager or administrator, primarily with Toronto.

Didier joins the Blue Jays after seven seasons as a senior advisor to the general manager with the Texas Rangers. He has also worked with the Tigers, Brewers, Expos, Dodgers, Mariners, Indians, D-backs and Orioles. Queen, who was Toronto's pitching coach from 1996-99, returned to the Jays' organization in 2008 as a roving Minor League coach.
