ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Gary DiSarcina has been named the Los Angeles Angels' third-base coach.
Manager Mike Scioscia hired the longtime Angels shortstop on Tuesday.
DiSarcina replaces Dino Ebel, who was promoted to bench coach in a shake-up of Scioscia's staff.
DiSarcina managed Boston's Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket last season, advancing to the International League's championship series.
He spent 2011 and 2012 working in the Angels organization.
DiSarcina spent his entire 12-year playing career with the Angels, appearing at shortstop in 1,069 of his 1,086 career games, seventh-most in club history. A 1995 All-Star, he batted .258 with 28 homers and 355 RBIs in his career.
