It is with mixed emotions the TORONTO BLUE JAYS announce the resignation of KEITH LAW. LAW has been with the Club since 2002, serving in more recent years as a Special Assistant to the General Manager. He has elected to take a position with ESPN as Senior Scouts Baseball Writer, offering baseball analysis on the network's website ESPN.com along with its many television and radio properties.
LAW says, "I'm grateful to J.P. RICCIARDI and the BLUE JAYS for the opportunities they have given me over the last four years, but am excited to move on to the challenges of my new role with ESPN."
The 32-year-old native of Smithtown, New York, was first hired by the BLUE JAYS on January 1, 2002. His freelance writing with both ESPN.com and Baseball Prospectus captured the attention of Blue Jays General Manager J.P. Ricciardi. This led to a position in the Blue Jays Baseball Operations department evaluating Major and Minor League players through the use of statistical analysis.
