The Dodgers announced the coaching staffs throughout the minor leagues on Tuesday, including managers returning to roles at the top four affiliates.
Travis Barbary is the manager for Triple-A Oklahoma City, a spot he’s held since 2019. This is Barbary’s 28th season in the Dodgers organization, in roles that have included player, bullpen catcher, minor league hitting coach, catching coordinator, and minor league manager.
Scott Hennessey is back at the helm for Double-A Tulsa, where he’s been since 2017. Austin Chubb is manager for a second year at High-A Great Lakes, his sixth year as a Dodgers coach. John Shoemaker, the Dodgers captain of player development with over four decades in the organization, returns to manage Low-A Rancho Cucamonga.
Let’s look at the staffs at each level, with those in new positions italicized.
