Jay Bell has been named the new hitting coach.
Rick Sofield, he was the West Virginia Power manager this past season, has been named the 1st base coach replacing Luis Silverio. He will also oversee the running game and outfield defense. I'm certainly happy to see someone new take over as the base running coach.
Dave Jauss was added as a coach and there has been no specific role given for him.
Silverio was names Senior Advisor, Latin American Operations.
Obviously Jay Bell is probably the headline here.
