Brewers announce 2014 minor league coaches

New, comment

A couple of previously-announced managerial changes are the big story here.

The Brewers finalized their 2014 coaching staffs today, making announcements ranging from a new manager at AAA Nashville all the way down to an eight-man crew in the Dominican Republic.

The big story for the season ahead is likely to be previously-reported hirings of Rick Sweet and Carlos Subero to manage Nashville and Huntsville, respectively. Sweet is a former MLB catcher who has managed 24 seasons in the minors as a member of seven organizations, while Subero has 13 years of minor league managerial experience with three teams.

Beyond that the biggest change may be with Low-A Wisconsin, where returning manager Matt Erickson will have an all-new staff. 2013 Helena coaches Elvin Nina and Chuckie Caufield have been promoted to the Midwest League, while former Huntsville hitting coach Kenny Dominguez moves down the ladder to join them.

Former Wisconsin pitching coach Dave Chavarria has been promoted to Brevard County, where he'll join returning manager Joe Ayrault and hitting coach Ned Yost IV. One-time Brewer outfielder Jeremy Reed joins the coaching ranks as the team's minor league hitting coordinator and former Brevard County pitching coach Mark Dewey will be the assistant minor league pitching coordinator.

Tom Haudricourt has the full list of coaches, if you'd like to see if I missed anything notable.
