The Dodgers have one of baseball’s most innovative front offices. The latest move is another example of how.

L.A. will have two assistant coaches bounce between the majors and minors, according to a report from Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times.

As McCullough said, the tactic will allow them to have different viewpoints on their major league hitters and top prospects. Both coaches will obviously be familiar with Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger and other upstart hitters. Allowing Wooten to work with the major league team will provide new perspective for veteran bats.

For all the talk about the Dodgers’ financial strength, their biggest point of emphasis is player development and evaluation. This strategy is another means of doing so.

    I have maintained that the hitting coaches should ‘ earn their pay ‘ more so than ever this, and past years.. i.e. Puig and Pederson especially.. This move appears to be a step in the right direction.. If these boys can pick it up to their potential, then The Dodgers can be serious contenders to The WS crown..
