Rangers Name Minor League Staff
The Texas Rangers just announced their 2011 Minor League coaching staff, and four former LumberKings’ coaches are included on the list.
Trainer Jeff Bodenhamer (’05-’07) is with the new high-A affiliate in Myrtle Beach (replacing Bakersfield), while trainer Jake Newburn (’08), who was in Bakersfield, takes over Bodie’s vacated spot in low-A Hickory.
Newburn is joined in Hickory by Jason Hart (’08), who will serve as hitting coach. Speaking of hitting coaches, Brian Dayett (’05-’08) is back with short-A Spokane.
The list did not include instructors and coordinators, but I would assume that former Clinton manager Mike Micucci (’07-’08) is still the Field Coordinator and former Kings’ pitching coach Danny Clark (’07-’08) is still the Pitching Coordinator.
