The Braves add a veteran baseball man to their minor league staff:
Five months after being fired by the Orioles, former manager and baseball lifer Dave Trembley has landed the minor league field coordinator position with the Atlanta Braves, according to an industry source.
He is also expected to supervise the instruction of coaches and players throughout the Braves’ organization.
Trembley, who has been out of work since he was fired by the Orioles on June 3, could not be reached for comment.
Trembley, 59, spent eight years with the Orioles organization, including nearly three full years as manager, before he was dismissed after the team started 2010 with a 15-39 record and was buried in last in the American League East.
In parts of four seasons as manager, Trembley’s Orioles posted a 187-283 (.398 winning percentage) record. He spent more than two decades in the minors, mostly as a manager, before being promoted to the big leagues in 2007 as the Orioles’ bullpen coach.
Good hire by the Braves. He seems like a great person to have on our player development staff. From what I've read and heard about him, he's always been well respected. If anyone knows anything more about him, please share in the comments.
Of course, this means that the Braves hire yet another former member of the Orioles front office. Frank Wren is a former Orioles GM, and he has added several other former Orioles in key positions with the Braves, including Scouting Director Tony DiMacio.
