Dorante Takes Helm of Pulaski Yankees for 2017

The New York Yankees have assigned Luis Dorante as the manager of the Pulaski Yankees for the 2017 season the team announced on Wednesday. Dorante spent the last two seasons with the Charleston RiverDogs and is the winningest manager in RiverDogs history with 213 wins.

Joining Dorante will be Pitching Coach Gerardo Casadiego, Hitting Coach Scott Seabol, Trainer Manny Ozoa, Strength and Conditioning Coach Danny Russo and Video Manager Nick Avanzato.

Casadiego is entering his fifth season as a pitching coach in the Yankees organization; this will also be his first season as a pitching coach in the United States. His previous four seasons were spent as the pitching coach for the Dominican Summer League Yankees. In 2015 he led the DSL Yankees 1 to a 3.01 ERA and a league-high 632 strikeouts.

Hitting Coach Scott Seabol is entering his first season as a coach in the organization. Seabol was originally drafted by the Yankees in the 88th round of the 1996 First-Year-Player Draft and at the time of his MLB debut he was the lowest drafted player in history to make it to the major leagues. He was a career .287 hitter in the minors and hit .217 in parts of two seasons with the Yankees and the Cardinals. In 2008 and 2009 he played for the Hiroshima Carp of the Japanese Central League where he hit .258 in 150 games.
