Source: D-Backs consider Matt Williams for staff
The team announced Monday that it won't renew the contracts of third base coach Chip Hale and first base coach Lorenzo Bundy. Williams, who turns 44 next month, would appear to be qualified for either job.
Williams averaged 30 home runs per season during the 1990s and was regarded as one of the National League's top sluggers for most of that decade. He reached the World Series with the Giants in 1989, the Indians in 1997 and the Diamondbacks in 2001.
Williams played 17 seasons in the major leagues, most recently with Arizona in 2003. He is a minority owner with the Diamondbacks and does part-time broadcasting work for the team.
