Ever since Chris Woodward was appointed as the new Texas Rangers manager, there have been some changes in the backroom staff. According to insiders, Chris Woodward has had an active role pertaining to those who have left and also to the new faces coming in. with regards to the outgoing staff, pitching coach Doug Brocail is the big name.
Doug Brocail came to Texas Rangers three seasons ago with the aim of improving the team’s pitching department. The improvement in the team’s pitching over the past two seasons certainly bear testimony to the fact that Doug Brocail achieved what he came to do. However, his time at Texas Rangers came to an end on 12 November when the news was released at the club’s official website that Doug Brocail will be leaving Texas Rangers. To date, it’s not really known where Doug Brocail will end up.
Assistant pitching coach Dan Wharten is also another coaching staff expected not to return to Texas Rangers in 2019. The club hasn’t released an official statement as yet but news coming out of the team suggest that this is the final month for Dan Wharten at Texas Rangers.
Texas Rangers announced recently that five new coaching staff have joined the team. The new coaching staff will help the new manager Chris Woodward in improving the team’s performances and also in helping the team challenge for the top honours. The new coaching staff include Luis Ortiz. Previously, Luis Ortiz worked for the Dodgers as their assistant hitting coach. At Texas Rangers, Ortiz becomes the head hitting coach. The other four are all returnees as they have worked with Texas Rangers before. These include Jayce Tingler, Tony Beasley and Don Wakamatsu.
Jayce Tingler first worked with Texas Rangers as a baserunning/outfield coach in the 2015/16 season. In the 2017/18 season, he decided to do some office work away from the field. However, due to his impressive work during the 2015/16 season on the pitch, the Texas Rangers board decided to bring him back to take the same role once again. In the offseason, Jayce Tingler was linked with a number of managerial vacancies despite his limited managerial experience but he declined to accept any role.
Don Wakamatsu previously served as a bench coach at Texas Rangers and will be returning in the same role come 2019. The same applies to Tony Beasley who will be returning as third base coach, the same role he held during his first stint with Texas Rangers.
