With about a week until the Angels’ minor league camp opens on March 6, the club has announced its full minor league roster for the 2022 season.
Lou Marson will return to manage at Triple-A Salt Lake, and two more managers have been promoted. Andy Schatzley goes from High-A to Double-A Rocket City, and Jack Howell goes from Low-A to High-A Tri-Cities. Ever Magallanes, who is new to the organization, will lead Low-A Inland Empire.
Salt Lake’s staff also includes pitching coach Jairo Cuevas, batting coach Brian Betancourt and coach Ray Olmedo. In Rocket City (Madison, Alabama), Michael Wuertz is the pitching coach, Kenny Hook is the batting coach, and Dann Bilardello is the coach. In Tri-Cities (Pasco, Washington), Doug Henry is the pitching coach, Brian Rupp is the batting coach, and Jack Santora is the coach. The Inland Empire staff includes pitching coach Bo Martino, batting coach Ryan Sebra and coach Trevor Nyp.
The Angels will also have short-season teams in the Arizona Complex League and the Dominican Summer League.
Notable additions to the minor league personnel include former big leaguers Chris Carpenter and Rod Barajas. Carpenter, who had worked with the St. Louis Cardinals, is the Angels’ pitching consultant. Barajas, who was on the minor league and major league staff with the San Diego Padres, is the new catch coordinator.
