Dodgers announce coaching staff


The Dodgers have finalized the coaching staff for Don Mattingly, as reported by the Los Angeles Times, and the first-year manager will have a lot of experience to lean on.

Trey Hillman, replaced as manager of the Royals midseason, will be Mattingly's bench coach. Davey Lopes, former Brewers manager and long-time coach with the Phillies, returns to the original team he played for, taking over as first-base coach. Veteran Jeff Pentland will be hitting coach, assisted by "hitting instructor" Dave Hansen, the former pinch-hitting specialist who has been Arizona's organizational hitting coordinator.

Rick Honeycutt remains as pitching coach, the position he's held since 2006. Ken Howell is the only other holdover, staying on as bullpen coach. Former major league player and minor-league manager Tim Wallach will be third-base coach.

Honeycutt returning to Dodgers

Rick Honeycutt
It's not often that a coach remains with a team even as the managers keep changing, but it looks like Rick Honeycutt has staying power.

Ken Davidoff of Newsday reports via Twitter that Honeycutt will return for his sixth season as Dodgers pitching coach. The 21-year major leaguer joined the Dodgers' staff in 2006 and was one of two coaches to make the transition from manager Grady Little to Joe Torre after the 2007 season. Don Mattingly replaced Torre at the conclusion of this season.

From 2006-2009, Los Angeles had a 3.88 ERA, tops in the major leagues. The Dodgers were eighth in the National League in ERA last season and third in strikeouts.
