After interviewing for multiple manager openings and not getting the jobs there was speculation that Tim Wallach might prefer to be a bench coach for the Dodgers and sure enough the team announced that he’ll switch from third base coach to bench coach in 2014.
Wallach replaces Trey Hillman, who was let go as bench coach against manager (and best friend) Don Mattingly’s wishes last month.
Wallach was a finalist for the jobs in Detroit and Seattle that went to Brad Ausmus and Lloyd McClendon, respectively.
