ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Gary DiSarcina has been named the Los Angeles Angels’ third base coach.
Manager Mike Scioscia hired the longtime Angels shortstop on Tuesday.
DiSarcina replaces Dino Ebel, who was promoted to bench coach in a shake-up of Scioscia’s staff.
DiSarcina managed Boston’s Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket last season, advancing to the International League’s championship series.
He spent 2011 and 2012 working in the Angels organization.
DiSarcina spent his entire 12-year playing career with the Angels, appearing at shortstop in 1,069 of his 1,086 career games, seventh-most in club history. A 1995 All-Star, he batted .258 with 28 homers and 355 RBIs in his career.
