A few weeks later naming Mark Kotsay’s manager, A, announced his 2022 coach staff this afternoon.As Previously reported, Former Tigers and Angels skipper Brad Ausmus joins as Kotzei’s bench coach. Meanwhile, last season’s batter coach Darren Bush will move to third base / run prevention coach. The third base coach belonged to Kotzei before being promoted to replace Bob Melvin at the manager’s office.
Replacing Bush as a top-hit instructor is Tommy Everridge, who was promoted from the same role in Triple A Las Vegas. This will be the first Big League coaching job at the age of 38, who temporarily entered the Big League with A on his back in 2009. He has spent most of the last decade coaching the Auckland system.
Paired with Everidge is Chris Cron, who joins the staff as an assistant batter coach. Chris Cron, the father of Rockies first baseman CJ Cron, set the time for the Big League in the early 1990s and joined A after long-term collaboration with prospects for the Diamondbacks system. Former assistant batter coach Eric Martins slides to first base coach, and Mike Aldrete vacates the post to serve as quality control coach.
The pitching instruction tandem remains as it is. Pitching coach Scott Emerson is back in his fifth full season. Marcus Jensen (with Bush) made some consideration in the search for A’s management this winter, but returned to last season’s position as a bullpen coach.
