Former Phillies assistant general manager Chuck LaMar has been hired by the Toronto Blue Jays, according to MLB.com.

LaMar, who parted ways with the Phillies in late September after four years with the organization, will be a special assignment scout for the Blue Jays with an emphasis on amateur scouting.

"With over 25 years of experience, we welcome Chuck's insight and expertise," Andrew Tinnish, the Toronto director of amateur scouting, said in a news release. "I look forward to the contributions he will make to our scouting team as we continue to prepare for the 2012 first-year player draft."

LaMar had been in charge of the Phillies player development system the last three years and Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. described his departure as "a disappointment" in September. LaMar has not spoken publicly about leaving the Phillies.
