NEW YORK (AP) — Former federal prosecutor Bryan Seeley has been hired to run Major League Baseball's investigations department.

He will take charge of the department MLB established in 2008, which primarily focuses on performance-enhancing drugs but also looks into policy violations and works with law enforcement.

Commissioner Bud Selig on Thursday called Seeley an "invaluable resource for our game, in ways that will protect the interests of our clubs and players alike."

In May, several employees left the unit following last year's drug inquiry that led to suspensions of 14 players. They included Dan Mullin, senior vice president of investigations, and George Hanna, senior director of investigations.

Seeley prosecuted white-collar crimes, including public corruption, as assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington.
