TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays fired minor-league pitching co-ordinator Sal Fasano on Monday, according to multiple industry sources.

The move is the latest change to the organization’s player development staff, coming on the heels of Doug Davis’ dismissal as minor-league field co-ordinator on Thursday.

Amateur scouting director Brian Parker and national crosschecker Blake Davis were fired Wednesday.

The highly regarded Fasano joined the Blue Jays system as manager of single-A Lansing in 2010 after a 16-year pro catching career that included 16 games with Toronto in 2007.

He was the double-A Eastern League’s manager of the year in 2011 after leading New Hampshire to a championship. He later served as the system’s roving catching instructor before taking over as pitching co-ordinator before the 2015 season.
