CLEARWATER, Fla. — The Phillies promoted Marti Wolever to assistant general manager for amateur scouting Wednesday. Wolever had served as director of scouting for the previous decade and oversees the Phillies' draft.

Of the drafts run by Wolever, the Phillies have procured players like Ryan Howard, Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick. More importantly, Wolever's drafts have supplied the minor-league talent used to acquire Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Hunter Pence among many others.

"We are pleased to recognize his numerous contributions with this promotion," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a statement.

Wolever joins Scott Proefrock and Benny Looper as the team's third assistant general manager under Amaro.
