Rangers announce coaching staffs


With Bobby Jones moving up to the major league coaching staff, the Texas Rangers had to make a few changes to their minor league staffs. Steve Buechele takes Jones' place in Triple-A Round Rock, moving up from Double-A Frisco. James Wood moves up from Class A Myrtle Beach to take Buechele's place in Frisco.

Buechele led the RoughRiders to the postseason in three of his four seasons there. Wood was the 2013 Carolina League Manager of the Year and helped the Pelicans make the playoffs in each of the last three seasons.

Scott Coolbaugh, as the club announced earlier, is the hitting coordinator and Brook Jacoby is the assistant hitting coordinator.
