In the midst of all the doom-and-gloom scenarios surrounding the Tampa Bay Rays and the City of St. Petersburg, the team has set it’s coaching staff under new manager Kevin Cash.
Per an official Facebook message from the Rays:
Former third-base coach Tom Foley has been named as the Rays new bench coach, while former Durham Bulls skipper Charlie Montoyo will take over his spot, and Rocco Baldelli will take over for George Hendrick — who accepted a position with the Rays as Special Advisor, Baseball Operations — as the first-base coach.
Pitching coach Jim Hickey, hitting coach Derek Shelton, bullpen coach Stan Boroski, and major league coach Jamie Nelson will all return under the new regime.
