Longtime scout Larry Corrigan leaving Angels for Twins

Larry Corrigan, a major league special assignment scout for the Angels for the past two years, is leaving the organization to return to the Minnesota Twins, the team with which he spent 20 years (1987-2007) in various scouting roles.

Corrigan, 62, played seven minor league seasons in the Dodgers and Twins organizations and spent four years (1981-84) as the Iowa State University head coach before moving into professional scouting.

He was a special assistant to the general manager for four years (2008-11) in Pittsburgh before joining Angels GM Jerry Dipoto’s staff before the 2012 season.

With Jeff Schugel recently leaving to take a job with the Atlanta Braves, the Angels have lost two of their three major league special assignment scouts. Tim Schmidt, the other special assignment scout, will return for 2014.
