Angels announce minor league coaching, development staffs
Smell that? It’s the sweet, sweet fragrance of baseball being just around the corner.
As pitchers and catchers continue their workouts with the Big League club in Tempe, Ariz. during Spring Training, the Los Angeles Angels have finalized their coaching and development staffs for each of their affiliates.
The AAA Salt Lake Bees– entering their 19th season as a part of the Halo’s organization– will be under the control of manager Lou Marson, pitching coach Pat Rice and hitting coach Brian Betancourth.
Lou worked as a coach for the Bees for part of 2016 and as our hitting coach in 2017 before managing @Mobile_BayBears and the Mesa Solar Sox in the @MLBazFallLeague last season. We're happy to have him back as the skipper this season. pic.twitter.com/QOEwjKqpMN
