Roving instructor Doug Dascenzo is the new big league third base coach.
No word on what happened to Randy Ready, the Gwinnett Braves’ former manager. Perhaps he will become the new Braves setup man and will handle high-leverage situations when there are between six and four outs remaining in playoff games.
