Bakersfield, Billings tab new skippers


Monday brought plenty of Reds minor league coaching news as coaching staffs for Triple-A Louisville, Single-A Dayton, Single-A Bakersfield, and Rookie-Billings were announced. New faces will assume managing roles for both Billings and Bakersfield come 2014.

Pat Kelly essentially received a promotion and will guide the Blaze after managing the Mustangs for the last three years. He takes over for Ken Griffey Sr. whose new role (if any) within the organization has yet to be revealed.

Tom Browning will also be moving alongside Kelly and will be Bakersfield's pitching coach. Meanwhile, Ray Martinez will handle the hitting coach responsibilities.

The new manager in Billings will be Dick Shofield. He spent last season as the hitting coach at Double-A Pensacola. Kevin Mahar will return as hitting coach while Derrin Ebert will take over the pitching coach duties from Browning.
