The return of Jody Reed


Getty ImagesJody Reed finished his 11-season major-league career with Detroit in 1997.

Jody Reed, famous in Dodger history for his domino role in the Pedro Martinez “Buttercup” trade of 1993, is returning to the organization as manager of the franchise’s Arizona League rookie team and Camelback Ranch – Glendale Coordinator of Instruction.

Reed served as the Yankees’ minor league defensive coordinator for the past two seasons.  No doubt, come Spring Training, he’ll field a question or two revisiting what happened in his contract negotiations following the 1993 season.

Former Dodger (and everywhere) reliever Matt Herges will be Reed’s pitching coach.

Lorenzo Bundy, meanwhile, will replace Tim Wallach and manage at Albuquerque. Bundy managed the Dodgers’ Triple-A team in Las Vegas from 2007-08.
