OAKLAND, Calif. _ Bob Geren was promoted to the Oakland Athletics’ coaching staff on Wednesday after managing the club’s Triple-A team in Sacramento the past three seasons.
First-base coach Mike Quade was reassigned within the organization, so Geren took his spot. But Geren’s assignment on the staff has not been finalized.
Geren, 41, guided the River Cats to a 231-201 record and back-to-back Pacific Coast League titles in 2001 and 02. He owns a 452-390 record in seven seasons as a minor league manager, including a 319-253 record in four seasons managing minor league affiliates within the Oakland organization.
Geren joined the As organization in 1999 as manager of the clubs Single-A affiliate in Modesto.
