Mark Kotsay appointed manager of the A’s


The possibility had been raised, but now it’s official: the A’s have hired Mark Kotsay as training manager.

Jon Heyman reported the news.

It’s not a hire that will stir up passions like Buck Showalter’s in New York, but it was done within the A’s budget. After all, Kotsay has no managerial experience and he was already in Oakland as a third base coach. He’s not going to hit the jackpot.

He was the favorite at the base and now he has the keys to the team.

Succeeding Bob Melvin won’t be easy, but he’s a good head ball. He will have to work miracles, but he knows the organization.

This means that Matt Quatraro and Joe Espada, bench coaches of the Rays and Astros, will have to wait a little longer before having their chance.

The A’s develop good players. Kotsay could become another talent developed by the club, but this time as a manager.

To be continued for the next several years, but he could be the final manager of the A’s in Oakland. The rumors of Vegas are more and more persistent …
