The Reds shake up their coaching staff


Ken Rosenthal reports a number of Reds coaching changes. Pitching coach Jeff Pico, bench coach Jay Bell and assistant hitting coach Lee Tinsley have all been dismissed. Jim Riggleman, the third base coach, is now the bench coach. First base coach Billy Hatcher is moving to third base.

Who’s on first? I don’t know (third base).

Finally, the new pitching coach is Mark Riggins, who has served as the Reds’ minor league pitching coordinator.

Bryan Price somehow kept his job as manager, but you don’t go into 2016 with what you had in 2015 if you had a 2015 like the Reds just had.

In other news, Vegas just took “Jim Riggleman will be the Reds’ interim manager by Memorial Day 2016” off the board.
