Pirates Name Rest Of Coaching Staff

15

Just filling in the blanks from the previous reports: Nick Leyva is the third base coach, not the bench coach. Jeff Banister is the bench coach, not the third base coach. Leyva will also serve as the infield coach. Euclides Rojas is the new bullpen coach. He had been a pitching instructor and Latin American Field Coordinator in the Pirates minor league system. He has previous bullpen coach experience with the Red Sox from 2003-2004. Luis Silverio is the new first base coach and outfield/baserunning coach after spending his entire career as a player and coach with the Royals (1974-2010). His most recent title was Special Assistant to Player Development, but he served as either first or third base coach from 2003-2008. He has previous experience in various capacities with the Dominican team, in scouting, and as an outfield instructor. Mark Strittmatter is a general coach. Seems like he'll work primarily with the catchers. Had been working previously as the bullpen catcher with the Rockies. Heberto Andrade stays on as the bullpen catcher.
