From the DDN:

As of Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 11, Todd Benzinger knew he would be returning to the Dragons to manage the team for a second season, but he didn’t know who his coaches would be.

“Really? That’s fantastic,” said the Reds’ former first baseman when he heard his new hitting coach would be Ken Griffey Sr., who finished a 19-year major-league career with a .296 batting average and several All-Star appearances, mostly with the Reds.

“I played with him, and even though Tony Perez was the hitting coach then, Kenny was a batting coach, too,” Benzinger said.

Also returning to the Dragons will be pitching coach Tony Fossas. Last season’s hitting coach, Tony Jaramillo, is expected to be assigned elsewhere in the organization.

The surprises to me are a) that Benzinger was back. I thought he was a disaster last year as manager, they got off to a horrible start and never showed any fire on the field all season. b) Griffey coaching at low A ball. It keeps him close to Cincy, but that’s a lot of bus trips for someone that’s been on a major league coaching staff in the past.
