Indians finalize 2012 coaching staff
CLEVELAND -- Indians manager Manny Acta has finalized his coaching staff for 2012, promoting Scott Radinsky from the bullpen to pitching coach.
Acta also named Dave Miller his bullpen coach and Tom Wiedenbauer first-base coach.
Radinsky recently completed his second season as Cleveland's bullpen coach. The former major league pitcher replaces Tim Belcher, who stepped down as Cleveland's pitching coach to spend time with his family.
Miller just concluded his 10th season as a pitching coordinator in the organization.
Wiedenbauer will coach first, oversee the outfielders and work with the Indians on baserunning. He replaces Sandy Alomar, who will be Acta's bench coach next season.
