Come one, come all! The more the merrier. The Dodgers can always find another chair in their conference room.
When team part-owner and Chief Executive Stan Kasten first observed the Dodgers’ organization and stated that he thought the front office was thin in places, little did anyone realize how much he meant thin in management.
On Monday the Dodgers added yet another to General Manager Ned Colletti’s stable of baseball minds, hiring veteran Pat Corrales as a special assistant.
Corrales is a former major league manager, coach and player, and has spent 53 years in baseball.
He has previously served with Kasten as a coach with both the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals.
Still, the official quote in the team press release came from Colletti:
“We are very happy to have Pat join us. His vast experience, especially from his years in Atlanta and Washington, will be a great strength to our organization. He will assist us in a variety of ways, including evaluating our player development system and helping us at the Major League level.”
