There’s a new coach in the ranks tonight as former big leaguer Chris Woodward, a roving minor league infield instructor with the Mariners, has joined the squad for this series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Woodward has a home not far from here in Safety Harbor, Fla., where his family spends much of its time.
When the team heard Woodward would be stopping by his home between roving assignments, they figured now was a good time for him to be here.
“It will be good to see some of the guys I was working with down there,” Woodward said.
Two of those guys — shortstop Brad Miller and infielder Nick Franklin — have had some recent struggles. Now seems like a good time for a fresh set of eyes to get a look at the pair and help with any suggestions.
