Brian Esposito and Edgar Varela are both new managers for the Pirates, but both were in the organization last year. Esposito replaces Dave Turegon, who will be an assistant field coordinator. Frank Kremblas, who managed Bradenton last year, will be a special assistant to player development.

Many of the rest of the names are familiar. One new one that sticks out is Scott Elarton, who had a long career with the Astros, Rockies, Indians and Royals. He pitched in independent ball last year. Another new name is Mark DiFelice, who pitched for a few years for the Brewers.

Mendy Lopez will manage for the Pirates in the Dominican.
