The seattle mariners have announced their coaching staff for 2023, with just a couple of changes compared to last year’s 2022. Trent Blank will step down from his role as Bullpen Coach to a new title of Major League Baseball Coach and Director of Pitching Strategy.

For his part, former two-time All-Star catcher Stephen Vogt1.83 meters tall and 97 kilos in weight, who just retired from playing about three months ago, will join the staff as a Quality Assurance coach and the Californian will also take over as Bullpen Coach from Blank:

Vogt, 38, is making a quick transition to Coach after a long playing career. Originally selected by the Rays in the 12th round of the 2007 draft, he played 794 games in the Majors for the Rays, A’s, Brewers, Giants, Diamondbacks and Braves. In September 2022, while playing with Oakland, he announced that he would retire from the game upon the completion of that season.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
