The Colorado Rockies have hired Eric Young, Sr. and Pedro Astacio as “guest instructors” during the teams spring training.
Manager Walt Weiss told Troy Renck that,
I love it. Bringing guys back to our organization who have been successful gives us credibility. I only see it as a positive…I will tell them to just roam around and spread the love.
There is a chance that Larry Walker could join the team “guest instructor” staff as well, after the WBC wraps up.
Young’s focus will be, no surprise here, stealing and bunting while Asticao will most likely “spread the love” around the mound.
