Dodgers News: Juan Castro Leaves Organization For New Job In Mexico

While it’s been a quiet offseason for the Los Angeles Dodgers in terms of player transactions, the club has experienced plenty of turnover in the coaching and front office departments.

Former director of player development Gabe Kapler left the organization to accept the Philadelphia Phillies’ managerial position. Among other departures include Kapler’s top assistant, Jeremy Zoll, who accepted a position with the Minnesota Twins to become the their farm director.

The Dodgers also saw assistant hitting coach, Tim Hyers, promoted to the Boston Red Sox’s lead hitting coach position. And most recently, bullpen coach Josh Bard exited the organization to become the New York Yankees’ bench coach under new manager Aaron Boone.

In a media session at the Winter Meetings, manager Dave Roberts revealed that quality assurance coach Juan Castro was the latest member of the coaching staff to depart, per Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA:

Castro, 45, joined the Dodgers’ coaching staff in 2011 as a special assistant to the front office and later served as the Minor League infield coordinator in 2015. The following year, in Roberts’ inaugural season as manager, he accepted a new role on his staff to become quality assurance coach.

In that capacity, Castro primarily assisted the club with its infield defense and was a spectator of every game, where he offered key input to the rest of the coaching staff.
