Indians name coaching staff, exercise option on Jimenez

By Sheldon Ocker Published: October 31, 2012

 The Indians and new manager Terry Francona will go to war in 2013 with a coaching staff that includes only one holdover.

   Bench coach Sandy Alomar will return to assist Francona after performing the same duties in 2012 for ousted manager Manny Acta.

  In addition to Alomar, 46, who will begin his fourth season as a Tribe coach, the staff will include pitching coach Mickey Callaway, hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo, third base coach Brad Mills, first base coach Mike Sarbaugh and bullpen coach Kevin Cash.

   Callaway, 37, was Cleveland's minor-league pitching coordinaror in 2012 and has been with the organization for three years.

  Van Burkleo has been a major-league coach for five years, including the Astros' hitting coach for the final seven weeks of the 2012 season. 

  Cash, 34, was the Blue Jays' advance scout last year after retiring as a player in 2011. He spent parts of eight seasons in the big leagues and played for Francona in Boston in 2007 and 2008.

   Mills, 55,  became manager of the Astros in 2010 and was fired midway through last season., He is the father of former Indians No. 1 draft choice, Beau Mills, who no longer is in the organization.  

  Sarbaugh, 45, has been in the Cleveland organization since 1990 and managed at Triple-A Columbus the past three seasons.

  The Tribe exercised Ubaldo Jimenez's 2013 option but declined the options on Travis Hafner and Roberto Hernandez.
