The Houston Astros have named Jamie Quirk their new bullpen coach, according to senior director of digital media Alyson Footer.
“Jamie has a wealth of experience and comes highly recommended,” Astros general manager Ed Wade told Footer on Wednesday, Nov. 4. “He had a long playing career and spent 15 seasons as a Major League coach. He’s another solid addition to our staff.”
“I’m excited to add such an experienced and knowledgeable coach like Jamie,” Mills told MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro. “He’ll bring a lot to our club. Overall, I feel we have an outstanding big league coaching staff.”
The Houston Astros' 2010 field staff (in addition to Mills and Quirk) is now set with Al Pedrique as the bench coach, Sean Berry returning as the hitting coach, Brad Arnsberg as the pitching coach, Dave Clark returning as the third base coach, and Bobby Meacham as the first base coach.
