Pirates’ GM Gets Special Assistants
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Bill Singer, a two-time 20-game winner in the major leagues, and Jax Robertson were hired Tuesday as special assistants to Pittsburgh Pirates general manager Dave Littlefield.
Singer and Robertson worked last season as Florida Marlins scouts. Littlefield was an assistant to former Marlins general manager Dave Dombrowski before succeeding Cam Bonifay as the Pirates general manager in July.
Singer won 118 games, mostly with the Dodgers, and was picked for two All-Star games.
Robertson, a former minor league catcher, previously spent four years as the Detroit Tigers’ scouting director.
The two join Jesse Flores, a former Cleveland Indians scouting supervisor, as special assistants to Littlefield. Flores joined the Pirates Nov. 27.
