HOUSTON (AP) -The Astros will shuffle their coaching staff next season under new manager Cecil Cooper, with Jackie Moore moving up from Triple-A to become Houston's new bench coach.
Moore will be promoted from managing at Round Rock. He will replace Mark Bailey, who was Houston's bullpen coach before Cooper took over when Phil Garner was fired Aug. 27.
Dewey Robinson, the Astros' director of pitching development, will take over as pitching coach. He'll replace Dave Wallace, who will work for the Astros in a different capacity.
Third base Doug Mansolino will leave the Astros and senior director of player personnel Paul Ricciarini will ``assume different responsibilities'' within the organization.
Mansolino was the Astros' third base coach for the past three seasons. He also worked for Garner in Milwaukee and Detroit.
Ricciarini has worked for the Astros for nine seasons. He became senior director of player personnel in January 2005.
