NEWS: Former Padres Manager Andy Green Appears “In Line” for Bench Coach

It appears David Ross has found his bench coach. Andy Green is a fine choice after plenty of experience as a big league manager.

Some news on the Cubs front today began with acknowledging that 2019 bench coach Mark Loretta was not being retained by the Cubs.

Jon Heyman hinted at further news with the following:

It appears David Ross has found his bench coach. Andy Green is a fine choice, as he has plenty of experience as a big-league manager.

Green was once an MLB infielder, primarily used as a super-utility player during his big league career. After serving as a coach in the minors, he was named the Diamondbacks third base coach in 2015. After only one season in that role, Green was hired as the manager of the San Diego Padres.

From 2016 to 2019, Green racked up a 274–366 record as Padres manager. Green showed some promise in the role but the team ultimately never reached any potential expectations that various people throughout baseball had for San Diego.

Nonetheless, Green went through a similar situation that Ross did. He was in a smaller, limited role and was then named a big-league manager. If Green is nothing else, he can be a guide for Ross and someone who can relate to what Ross is going through as a brand new manager in the major leagues.
