 WASHINGTON (AP) -The Washington Nationals will retain their entire coaching staff in 2008.
The team announced Thursday that pitching coach Randy St. Claire, hitting coach Lenny Harris, bench coach Pat Corrales, third base coach and spring training coordinator Tim Tolman, first base coach Jerry Morales and bullpen coach Ricardo Aponte will again be on manager Manny Acta's staff.
St. Claire, the team's pitching coach since 2003, was the only holdover from the staff of former manager Frank Robinson.
Harris began this year as the team's minor league infield coordinator and was promoted to hitting coach when Mitchell Page took a leave of absence for personal reasons.
Acta will be starting his second season in 2008. The Nationals have already exercised the 2009 option on his contract.
Also, the Nationals said that infielder D'Angelo Jimenez, outfielder Alex Escobar and left-handed pitcher Micah Bowie have elected minor league free agency.
