The Colorado Rockies officially named Bud Black as their new manager on Nov. 7.
The process of filling out the rest of the club’s coaching jobs has rolled on since then. On Wednesday, the Rockies announced the hiring of former Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond as bench coach.
Redmond managed the Marlins from 2013-15. In that time, he posted a 155-207 (.428) overall record.
Redmond played 13 MLB seasons before he got into coaching. A catcher, he had a lifetime batting average of .287 with three different ball clubs.
“We believe that Mike is a great fit for our staff,” Black said. “He brings a lot of intensity and a strong work ethic, and as a great communicator he is able to connect well with players. Mike is a solid teacher with a catcher’s experience, viewpoint and perspective. I am really looking forward to working with Mike.”
