Pirates announce minor league managers and coaches

The Pirates have announced the managers and coaching staffs for their minor league affiliates in 2013.

Jared Wickerham

The staffs will be as follows:


Dean Treanor: Manager
Mike Pagliarulo: Hitting Coach
Tom Filer: Pitching Coach


Carlos Garcia: Manager
Ryan Long: Hitting
Stan Kyles: Pitching


Frank Kremblas: Manager
Edgar Varela: Hitting
Justin Meccage: Pitching

West Virginia

Mike Ryan: Manager
Orlando Merced: Hitting
Jeff Johnson: Pitching


Dave Turgeon: Manager
Kory DeHaan: Hitting
Mike Steele: Pitching


Milver Reyes: Manager
Mike Lum: Hitting
Miguel Bonilla: Pitching

Tim Williams has a lot of information about these guys. Among the most interesting is Pagliarulo, whose hiring is discussed in a Fanpost by NHpiratefan. He's been running a baseball consulting business and has ties to new front office hire Bill Livesey. Ryan is the former outfielder who played a year at Indianapolis and spent last year as a player/coach (which basically means coach unless there's an emergency) in the Pirates' organization. Merced you've probably heard of.

On the whole, it strikes me as a group with quite a bit of playing experience, including in the majors.
