As expected, upon Dave Roberts’ official introduction, news about his coaching staff rolled in shortly thereafter. There’s plenty to keep you busy with across the blogosphere, so let’s get started.
- The Dodgers kicked off their coaching staff hiring with Bob Geren, their new bench coach.
- Minutes after Geren’s hiring, the team avoided arbitration by signing A.J. Ellis to a one-year, $4.5 million deal.
- Joining Roberts and Geren in the dugout will be new hitting coach Turner Ward.
- One MLB executive thinks the Dodgers will give Zack Greinke a six-year for deal $210 million.
