Although spring training officially got underway for the Toronto Blue Jays today, the team still hasn’t announced all of its minor-league coaching staff. Among the omissions is the Lansing Lugnuts — Toronto’s Midwest League affiliate — but that probably won’t be the case for much longer.
The Blue Jays announced their Triple-A and Double-A coaching staffs last month, but haven’t revealed their staffs for any affiliates lower than those levels. However, it appears more coaching assignments will be announced soon, considering Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reported this afternoon that last year’s Lugnuts manager, Ken Huckaby, will manage the High-A Dunedin Blue Jays this year, and former Lansing skipper John Tamargo Jr. (2012-14) will manage the Class-A short-season Vancouver Canadians. (You can read Davidi’s full report from the first day of Blue Jays training camp here.)
Of course, I’ll post the Lugnuts coaching staff as soon as I know it. In the meantime, here are links to my posts about the other Midwest League coaching staffs for 2016:
