Vermont, GCL Staffs Announced
The countdown to spring training shortens, and the Nationals' organizational flowchart lengthens. Washington today filled out the staffs for two of its minor league teams, the short-season Class A Vermont Lake Monsters and the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Nationals.
Jeff Garber will serve as the new Vermont manager, replacing Ramon Aviles (who in 2009 will manage the organization's spring training program in Viera, Fla., and then move into a coaching role with Class A Hagerstown). Garber, 42, spent last year as Washington's minor league field coordinator. Before the Lake Monsters' season starts in June, Garber will help out as a minor league spring training coordinator / infield coordinator. As for the rest of the Vermont staff: Franklyn Bravo will serve as the pitching coach, Sergio Mendez will serve as the hitting coach, and Wilkin Perez will serve as trainer.
With the GLC Nats, Bobby Henley is coming back for his fourth season as manager. Last year, the Nationals advanced to their league's championship series. Completing the staff: pitching coach Joel Sanchez, hitting coach Paul Sanagorski and coach Cesar Cedeno.
