The Astros finalized their 2014 coaching staff on Tuesday.
Brent Strom becomes the pitching coach. Pat Listach comes on as first base coach. Craig Bjornson is the bullpen coach. And Ralph Dickinson becomes the Astros' new assistant hitting coach. They join a returning staff that includes Dave Trembley (bench coach), Eduardo Perez (3rd base coach), Dan Radison as the special assignment coach, and John Mallee as the team's hitting coach.
All are on the staff, of course, of Astros' manager Bo Porter.
The staffing announcement was made Tuesday by Jeff Luhnow.
