Four Potential Coaching Staff Replacements For The Pittsburgh Pirates
Indianapolis Indians Manager Dean Treanor
Dean Treanor has been part of the Pirates’ organization since 2009. In 2009 he served as the pitching coach for Double-A Altoona. After one year in Altoona, he became the pitching coach for Triple-A Indianapolis in 2010. Treanor then got a big promotion when he became the Indians’ manager in 2011, a position he still holds.
Under Treanor’s guidance the Indianapolis Indians have done a lot of good on the field. He owns a .558 winning percentage as the Tribe’s manager, and has led them to multiple postseason appearances. He has also had a big hand in the development of players such as Starling Marte, Gregory Polanco, Gerrit Cole, Jameson Taillon, and Josh Bell to name a few.
Dean Treanor is someone that Clint Hurdle puts a lot of trust in faith in. The work he has done at Triple-A has definitely given Hurdle good reason to be this way with Treanor. However, Hurdle’s faith and trust in Treanor could be both a blessing and a curse.
The trust and faith Hurdle has in Treanor undoubtedly has to make him someone Clint would love to have on his staff. However, Clint also has to love having someone like that overseeing things down at Triple-A. I would not be surprised to see Treanor join the Pirates’ staff, but it also would not surprise me if he were to remain at Triple-A.
