Colbrunn, Tyson Named Managers

The Yankees made two managerial changes in the low minors today, as they announced that Charleston RiverDogs manager Torre Tyson would be named the manager of the Tampa Yankees, and taking his place would be RiverDogs hitting coach Gregg Colbrunn

Tyson was the RiverDogs’ hitting coach for two years and spent the last three years as their manager.

Colbrunn spent the last three years as the team’s hitting coach following his big league career. ┬áColbrunn was in the Major Leagues from 1992 to 2004, where he accumulated 98 homeruns and had a .799 career OPS.

These promotions mean that Luis Sojo, who was the Tampa manager last year, is now out of a job.

  1. I wonder if this has anything to do with Sojo’s performance as manager during the WBC last year.
