Former manager Chris Woodward, who coached Hyeon-jong Yang during the Texas Rangers, is heading to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
‘LA Times’ reporter Jack Harris reported on the 21st (Korean time), “According to sources, Woodward, who led the Texas Rangers, will be with the Dodgers as a special assistant at the front.”
Woodward was a former player and stayed in the major leagues through 5 teams for 12 years. He posted a career batting average of .239, 33 home runs, and 191 RBIs with an OPS of .661, and announced his retirement after the 2012 season. 온라인카지노
After his retirement, he worked as a club coordinator and rose to major league coaching in 2014, taking over as infield coach for the Seattle Mariners. He went on to coach the Dodgers’ third base and took the helm at Texas since 2019. Afterwards, Hyeonjong Yang made his name known to domestic fans as he wore the Texas uniform.
Texas gave Woodward a series of large free agents such as Corey Seager, Marcus Simian, and John Gray, but he failed to advance to the postseason and fell short of expectations.
Woodward recorded 211 wins and 287 losses over four years and was less than a .500 win rate, and Texas sacked him in August of last year. Third base coach Tony Beasley led the rest of the season as acting manager, and after the season ended, manager Bruce Bochy was appointed.
Woodward, who is new to the Dodgers, will help the team as a special assistant at the front desk. According to Harris, he will help with structural issues throughout the organization.
