Dodgers: Minor League Coach Leaves for Cleveland Guardians Organization
The current MLB lockout prohibits trades or free-agent signings involving any players on a team’s 40-man roster. It does not however stop coaches or managers from signing with new organizations. Former Dodgers minor league coach Danny-David Linahan announced his move to the Cleveland Guardians minor league staff.
In a Twitter post this past Friday, Linahan thanked the Dodgers players and staff for his time with the organization. Linahan will be working for the Guardians as a minor league hitting coach.
I’m excited to join the Cleveland Guardians as a MiLB Hitting Coach!
Can’t say thank you enough to the Dodgers players and staff I had the privilege to work alongside.
Ready to get to work! @CleGuardians pic.twitter.com/PmUejxxskR

Linahan was a video associate development coach for the Tulsa Drillers. The Drillers are the Dodgers Double-A affiliate club.

Before breaking into professional baseball coaching, Lineman served as a coach at University of Northern Colorado and was the director of player development at Abilene Christian University.
Linahan played his college ball for Southwest Oklahoma State and Hardin-Simmons college.

Our minor league coaches and managers get left in the minors to go to waste all of which would be better than the hacks we have running things. There’s no way up in this organization not even if you’re a former legend like Hershiser or Garvey, Cey etc. Just throw them on tv or at events and let our minor league staffs get poached
Obviously, you should be MLB owner or at least work in someone’s front office since you have all the answers and would have a team win all 162 games. Nothing less is acceptable I guess, just hire all the best players you can remember and it’s a done deal. Come on Don, you just don’t like someone, maybe Dave Roberts, and winning less than the world series every year means he sucks in your eyes. Maybe you should try looking at things realistically. And by the way the guy was a Video associate development coach at the AA affiliate. Don’t think “poaching” him will hurt the Dodgers to the point we lose 100 games next year…..SMH!
Poached eggs are good.
