Luis Urueta, Arizona Diamondbacks, MLB coaching staffs, MLB managers
Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Jake Lamb (22) talks with coach Luis Urueta (60) during a spring training game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick March 24, 2019.Brewers Vs Diamondbacks /

83) Luis Urueta

Luis Urueta had been the bench coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks for each of the last two seasons but he will be their new coordinator of MLB player development & instruction in 2022.

Urueta, 41, isn’t the D-Backs bench coach anymore because Lovullo said that Urueta and he were too similar and that a new bench would “fill his gaps” and someone that is “totally different.” Eventually, they hired the aforementioned Jeff Banister.

He was a coach on their MLB staff in 2018 and 2019 but had been in the minors with them from 2007 through 2017. He was their manager at their Dominican Rookie complex in 2007 before becoming their short-season field coordinator from 2008 through 2012. He returned to manage the managerial post in the Dominican in 2013 and 2014 before he became a coach for their Triple-A team in 2015.

He was their short-season field coordinator in 2016 and their full-season minor league coordinator in 2017.

The Red Sox interviewed Urueta last offseason for their managerial opening before rehiring Alex Cora.

84) Mike Redmond

Mike Redmond is the Colorado Rockies bench coach and he has been there since 2017.

Redmond, 50, was the manager for the Marlins in 2013, 2014, and the first 38 games of 2015 before he was fired after a 16-22 start.

Redmond was a backup catcher in the majors for 13 years, including seven with the Marlins before he retired from playing after the 2010 season. The Blue Jays hired him as a minor league manager in 2011 at Single-A as well as one season at Advanced-A before the Marlins hired him.

Redmond interviewed with Baltimore in the 2018-19 offseason before they hired Brandon Hyde as their new manager and the Tigers, at least, considered him before they hired A.J. Hinch last offseason.
