A’s announce 2015 coaching staff

The A’s have promoted from within to fill out their 2015 coaching staff. Notably, Darren Bush has been chosen to replace Chili Davis as hitting coach, after serving as the club’s bullpen coach each of the past two seasons.

Scott Emerson will fill that role, his first Major League coaching assignment following more than a decade as a pitching coach and instructor in the A’s Minor League system, and Marcus Jensen will work dually as an assistant hitting coach and catching coach on manager Bob Melvin’s staff that’s received quite the makeover.

Earlier this week, Mike Aldrete was named Melvin’s new bench coach amid the departure of Chip Hale, who was elected Arizona’s new manager.

There’s still familiarity, though, elsewhere, with pitching coach Curt Young, third base coach Mike Gallego and first base coach Tye Waller all returning in their same capacities next year.
