The Blue Jays announced their Minor League Coaching assignments for the 2013 season, here is a quote from the press release.
“The TORONTO BLUE JAYS announce the following appointments to their Minor League Field staffs for the 2013 season. Managers MARTY BROWN, JOHN TAMARGO JR., CLAYTON McCULLOUGH, DENNIS HOLMBERG and JOHN SCHNEIDER will return to their respective positions in Buffalo, Lansing, Vancouver, Bluefield and the Gulf Coast Blue Jays. Joining the organization as managers will be GARY ALLENSON who will take over as manager at New Hampshire (AA) and BOBBY MEACHAM who assumes the post in Dunedin (A). The club is also pleased to announce the additions of TIM LEIPER (Senior Advisor), TIM RAINES (outfield and baserunning coordinator), MIKE BARNETT (hitting coordinator), RICHIE HEBNER (hitting coach, New Hampshire) and STUBBY CLAPP (hitting coach, Dunedin).”
The one thing that I noticed did not make it onto the press release was the news that Sal Fasano will remain with the organization as the Minor League Catching Coordinator. Although not announced yet this was confirmed by Minor League Coordinator Doug Davis at this past weekends Coaching Clinic as well as being confirmed by Kevin Gray on Twitter.
Gary Allenson is being named manager of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats today. Sal Fasano to serve as minor-league catching coordinator.
