Jenkins, camp invites
The Reds announced Friday that Mack Jenkins has been promotes to assistant pitching coach on the Major League club.
Jenkins has been with organization for 22 years, the first 16 as a minor league pitching coach and the last six as the minor league pitching coordinator.
I don’t recall an assistant pitching coach for the Reds at the big league level before. Does anyone remember that happening?
(UPDATE: It has not been done with the Reds before in a formal capacity. Click here for my short story with quotes from Jenkins)
Also the following were signed to Minor League contracts with invites to Spring Training as non roster players:
RHP Sean Gallagher, LHP Jeremy Horst, RHP Chad Reineke, LHP Clayton Tanner, RHP Kanekoa Texeira, C Brian Esposito, C Corky Miller and OF Daryl Jones
