DiSarcina is Angels’ new 3B coach …

The Angels have hired former infielder Gary DiSarcina to be their new third-base coach, in place of Dino Ebel, who was promoted to bench coach.

DiSarcina spent his entire 12-year Major League career as a shortstop with the Angels — a period spanning from 1989 to 2000 — and was most recently managing the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket, R.I. DiSarcina, a Massachusetts native, worked in the Red Sox organization from 2007-10, including as a manager in Class A, then spent the 2012 season serving as the Angels’ Minor League field coordinator before returning to the Red Sox in December 2012.

DiSarcina played a year under Mike Scioscia, in 2000, and is well-regarded by general manager Jerry Dipoto, who promoted him just before he took the job with the Red Sox last offseason. He joins hitting coach Don Baylor – another former Angel — as a new addition to the Angels’ coaching staff, which saw bench coach Rob Picciolo and hitting coach Jim Eppard get dismissed after the 2013 season.

In the next day or two, the Angels are expected to announce a new seventh coach, who will serve as a facilitator to  advanced scouting but won’t dress for games.

Angels announce Minor League staff …

The Angels announced most of their Minor League development staff on Monday. Many are returnees, several got promotions and a few of them are new hirings, most of which were announced in mid-November.

A new name is Denny Hocking, the former utility player who played in the big leagues from 1993 to 2005 — with 11 of those years coming with the Twins — and spent 2012 as hitting coach for the Orioles’ Double-A affiliate.

The Angels lower Class A affiliate has moved from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Burlington for at least the next two seasons. Also, former infielder and Minor League field coordinator Gary DiSarcina has taken a job as manager of the Red Sox’s Triple-A affiliate.

The Angels are still looking for a manager for rookie-level Orem, after Tom Kotchman resigned.
