One-time Dodger outfielder and former Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has joined the Dodgers as their third-base coach, with Lorenzo Bundy remaining in the dugout as outfield coordinator.
It’s a homecoming for Roenicke, who was the Dodgers’ first-round draft pick (17th overall) in 1977. Roenicke played in 212 games for the Dodgers at the outset of a 527-game MLB career. He would later manage in the minors for the Dodgers in the 1990s, including a Texas League title with Double-A San Antonio in 1997.
As manager of the Brewers, Roenicke was 342-331 from 2011 through May 2015, winning the 2011 National League Central title.
Bundy is in his second year as a Dodger coach and eighth year in the organization, including three years as manager of Triple-A Albuquerque from 2011-13.
