I was looking for the thread that talked about what old Reds were doing now, but could not find it, so if this information has been given out already, I am sorry.

I was looking at the recent transactions in the MLB on espn.com and came across some interesting information. Several former Reds are being hired to coach and manage in the minors.

Mariano Duncan - hitting coach for Tennessee (Cubs)
Dave Burba - pitching coach Tri-City (Colorado)
Joel Youngblood - outfield and baserunning coordinator for Arizona
Kelly Stinnett - Manager - Rookie League club (DBacks)
Jacob Cruz - hitting coach - Yakima (DBacks)


This is only a list from the transactions made over the offseason so far. I don't have the time right now to look at each team's coaches from the past season, but I will try to add any more. Help me out here and make a list of all former Reds who are coaching and managing right now.

I could be wrong, but I believe he replaced an ex-Red in Andy Abad.

The Kinston Indians are moving to Zebulon (which is where the Reds' AA affiliate is currently located), and they will likely bring their manager with them, Aaron Holbert.

No, he was let go. Delino DeShields is taking over in Dayton.

Quite possibly the most obscure Red to actually make an Opening Day roster over that past decade.

Mike Lum spent last season as a coach with the Gulf Coast Pirates. I saw him come through Charleston a few years back when he was a Brewers Minor League instructor iirc.
