The Arizona League teams don’t have their own accounts, but via the Journal Sentinel, the AZL Brewers Blue will be led once again by Rafael Neda alongside hitting coach Brenton Del Chiaro and pitching coach Hiram Burgos. The Brewers Gold will have Nick Stanley as manager, Michel Schlact as pitching coach, and another coach in Brandon Macias. In the Dominican, the DSL Brewers will be managed by Victor Estevez. This summer’s joint-team will apparently be with Toronto Blue Jays instead of the Cleveland Indians as in season’s past, and will be managed by Fidel Piña.
