Story from Steve Melewski, who covers the Orioles.

"Ted Lekas, the O's amateur scout that was assigned to cover New England and eastern Canada, is leaving the organization to get back into pro scouting.

He has been replaced by Kirk Fredrikson who will handle New England, New York and parts of Canada for the club.

Since 1996, Fredrikson has worked with the New England Collegiate Baseball League, a college summer league, where he met Dan Duquette.

The 47-year-old Fredrikson, who began his new position on Nov. 1, recruited players to play in the league.

His biggest addition for the NECBL was when he recruited Stephen Strasburg to pitch for the Torrington Twisters. Fredrikson, whose coverage area includes six states, has also previously worked as an associate scout for the Angels."
