Change in minors: Dave Myers let go, Ozzie Timmons promoted

13

October

Ozzie Timmons will move up and replace Dave Myers as the Rays Triple-A hitting coach.

Timmons, 45, has been a coach in the Rays system for nine seasons, working his way from short-season to Class A and then to Double-A Montgomery. Timmons is a product of Brandon High and the University of Tampa, and played briefly for the Rays in 2000, having spent parts of five seasons in the majors during a 16-year pro playing career.

Myers, 56, had been with Durham for seven seasons, having spent the bulk of his career in the Seattle organization, including four seasons as a big-league coach.

More moves are coming to the minor-league staff, as the Rays plan to replace Timmons internally.
