Blue Jays Coaching Changes: Pat Hentgen Re-assigned, Bob Stanley New Bullpen Coach

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Today the Blue Jays announced that Bullpen Coach Pat Hentgen has been 're-assigned', likely to a roving minor league instructor, to let him be with his family during his fathers 'health problems'. I wish Pat the best and hope all goes well for his father.

His role  goes to former MLB pitcher Bob Stanley. He was a reliever and often closer for the Red Sox from 1977-1989, putting up a 115-97 record, with a 3.64 ERA and 132 saves. He also made 85 career starts. You mostly likely remember him from the 1986 World Series, playing a role in the Sox' big loss in Game 6, the Bill Buckner game. Stanley was on the mound when the ball rolled threw Buckner's legs.

Stanley was pitching coach for the Jays' Triple-A team for 2 seasons and has been in the Jays' organization for 3 years.

The 2014 coaching staff is:

Manager: John Gibbons

Bench Coach: DeMarlo Hale

Hitting Coach: Kevin Seitzer

Pitching Coach: Pete Walker

Third Base Coach: Luis Rivera

First Base Coach: Tim Leiper

Bullpen Coach: Bob Stanley
