Former Orioles manager Dave Trembley finds himself in interesting company this season. Trembley accepted a position as Atlanta’s new minor league field coordinator and is working with four other former managers in the Braves organization along side new skipper Fredi Gonzalez.
Trembley is on the field with fellow in Lake Buena Vista with fellow former managers Larry Parrish, Carlos Tosca, Lee Elia and Jimy Williams on Gonzalez’s new staff. An article on AJC.com detailed the Braves experienced coaching staff.
“Those guys are here to help out,” Braves second baseman Dan Uggla said. “They’ve all been there before, so if a young guy wants to pick anybody’s brain, it’s not going to do anything but benefit him. Any time you’ve got five former managers helping out – I mean, they were managers for a reason.”
Gonzalez did tell the media down in Florida that Trembley may “deserve another opportunity” to manage. What do you think?
