OC Register: Angels’ Dino Ebel expected to be among Dodgers’ coaching hires


Recommended Posts

The Dodgers plan to begin filling the vacancies on their major league coaching staff in the next few days and Angels coach Dino Ebel is expected to be among the new hires.

The 52-year-old Ebel has spent the past 14 seasons on Mike Scioscia’s coaching staff with the Angels, serving as the third-base coach for most of that time and Scioscia’s bench coach for four seasons. He would replace Chris Woodward, the Dodgers’ third-base and infield coach over the past three seasons who left to become the Texas Rangers’ new manager.

The Dodgers have three other vacancies to fill. Hitting coach Turner Ward left for the same position with the Cincinnati Reds. Assistant hitting coach Luis Ortiz joined Woodward’s staff in Texas. And gameplanning/communications coach Danny Lehmann is also not expected to return in 2019.

Ebel began his professional career in the Dodgers’ organization, spending six seasons as an infielder in the minor leagues. After serving as a player-coach with minor-league teams in San Antonio and San Bernardino, he was a full-time coach and manager in the Dodgers’ farm system until joining the Angels as manager of their Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake City in 2005. He joined Scioscia’s major-league staff after bench coach Joe Maddon left to become the Tampa Bay Rays manager in 2006.

Meanwhile in roster moves, the Dodgers released relievers Erik Goeddel and Zac Rosscup who were designated for assignment last week. Utilityman Tim Locastro was also DFAed last week. He was traded to the New York Yankees for minor-league right-hander Drew Finley (the son of Dodgers vice president of amateur and international scouting David Finley).

Also, Villa Park grad Jacob Scavuzzo has signed with the San Diego Padres as a minor-league free agent. A 21st-round draft pick of the Dodgers in 2012, Scavuzzo hit .308 with a .945 OPS and 13 home runs in 61 games at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga in 2015 but stalled out at Double-A over the next three seasons.
