Dodgers Hire Former Giant Brett Pill as Double-A Coach

Pill played parts of seasons for the Giants.

The Dodgers have been announcing a plethora of new coaching staff hires and changes. Recently, they brought aboard former San Francisco Giants player Brett Pill as a coach for the Double-A Tulsa Drillers.

This continues a recent trend of the Dodgers hiring former Giants and their front office members and vice versa.

Pill, 35, was once considered one of the Giants’ top prospects and wound up playing just 111 games at the big league level — all with San Francisco. He was a seventh round draft pick back in 2006. Pill is a local boy, hailing from San Dimas. He attended high school in Covina and went to college at Cal State Fullerton.

While SF has padded its brass recently with people with ties to the Dodgers (former GM Farhan Zaidi, and new manager Gabe Kapler), Los Angeles is keeping up on the fringes with Pill coming on board.

The Dodgers continue to make changes as they have experienced a lot of turnover from top to bottom in recent months. However, many of their integral pieces of the coaching staff have stayed put, including bench coach Bob Geren and new pitching coach Mark Prior staying within the organization.
