After hiring Greg Colbrunn as their new hitting coach earlier this week, the Red Sox have added a long-time member of the organization as an assistant.

According to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald, the Red Sox have named Victor Rodriguez as assistant hitting coach. Rodriguez has been with the organization with 18 seasons, including the last six as minor league hitting coordinator, but next season will be his first as a member of the major league staff. He was in the running for the primary hitting coach job until the Red Sox hired Colbrunn.

With these latest hires, new manager John Farrell has officially locked in his staff for 2013. Colbrunn and Rodriguez will be joined by pitching coach Juan Nieves, bench coach Torey Lovullo, third base coach Brian Butterfield and first base coach Arnie Beyeler. Gary Tuck is back as the bullpen coach and is the last man standing from Bobby Valentine’s staff.
