Rangers hire new pitching, hitting coaches to complete staff

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Rangers have hired former reliever Doug Brocail as their pitching coach and Anthony Iapoce as hitting coach.

With those moves and the promotions of Triple-A coaches Brad Holman and Justin Mashore, the Rangers completed manager Jeff Banister's on-field staff for next season.

Brocail was Houston's pitching coach from 2011-13, then a special pitching adviser for the Astros in 2014. He was pitching coach at Double-A Corpus Christi last season.

Iapoce spent the last three years overseeing the Chicago Cubs' minor league hitting program.

Holman will be bullpen coach for the Rangers after three seasons as pitching coach at Triple-A Round Rock. Mashore will be the assistant hitting coach in the majors after the last two years as Round Rock's hitting coach.
