#REDS BASELINE ITEMS: MINOR LEAGUE COACHING CHANGES FOR 2016

The Reds recently announced coaching changes to a few of their minor league affiliates.  Some new and familiar faces take over roles within the organization.  Here’s a rundown…

AA-PENSACOLA: On the heels of leading the Pensacola Blue Wahoos to their first playoff berth, Pat Kelly returns as manager for a second season. Kelly is joined by major league veteran Danny Darwin in his first season as Pensacola’s pitching coach, while Alex Pelaez returns for his third year as the team’s hitting coach.

Advanced-A DAYTONA: Pitching Coach Tom Brown and Hitting Coach Travis “Gookie” Dawkins have joined the staff alongside returning Manager Eli Marrero and Athletic Trainer Kyle Utne. Daytona’s 2015 Pitching Coach, Tony Fossas, has been promoted to Cincinnati Reds Pitching Coordinator.

R-BILLINGS: Ray Martinez will serve as field manager of the Billings Mustangs for the 2016 season. Martinez replaces Dick Schofield, who was promoted to manage the Dayton Dragons of the Class-A Midwest League.

Don’t forget to join us tonight at the Holy Grail Banks for another tag-team match featuring a live episode of the Reds Hot Stove League show and Better Off Red Baseball Trivia!

The action gets underway at 6pm as Reds reliever J.J. Hoover joins host Jim Kelch for the popular Hot Stove program.  Immediately following, yours truly takes over for another round of baseball trivia.

If you haven’t joined us yet for one of these fun Reds-themed Tuesday nights at Holy Grail, you really should.  It’s a whole bunch of fun with a great atmosphere, not to mention, it’s a great way to get your Reds fix during these cold winter nights.

That’s all for now.  More in a bit.

Happy New Year!!
