Updated: for those interested, the Cubs have announced their minor league coaching staffs for the upcoming season.
Joining Ryne Sandberg at AAA Iowa will be pitching coach Mike Mason along with the return of hitting coach Von Joshua.
At AA Tennessee, replacing Sandberg as manager will be Bill Dancy, with pitching coach Dennis Lewallyn and hitting coach Tom Beyers.
Buddy Baily returns to A Daytona for a second season and is joined by hitting coach Richie Zisk and pitching coach Tom Pratt.
At the rookie levels, Mesa will be managed by Juan Cabreja, with pitching coach Rick Tronerud and hitting coach Desi Wilson. Dominican-1 Manager is Manuel Callado with pitching coach Leo Hernandez and hitting coach Alberto Garcia and at Dominican-2 (Rookie) the manager is not yet announced, while the pitching coach is Anderson Tavares and the hitting coach is Leo Perez.
Most importantly, the Cubs also announced their minor league coordinators, and fear not, longtime Cub organization stalwart/icon Dave Bialas remains on as field coordinator. The only real change appears to be Marty Pevey, who spent last year as manager at Single-A Peoria and will take over as catching coordinator, the spot that Jody Davis occupied last year.
