The Charleston RiverDogs will have a new skipper this season and he brings a resume that has plenty of Major League experience. Al Pedrique, who was the interim manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2004, was hired as the RiverDogs manager.
Pedrique replaces Carlos Mendoza, who was recently named a roving defensive coach for the Yankees’ minor league teams.
Most recently, Pedrique (left) was the bench coach for the Houston Astros. He also played three seasons with the New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Detroit Tigers.
