Indians and Clippers announce 2020 Columbus coaching staff

Andy Tracy, new Clippers manager, played Major League Baseball for the Expos, Rockies and Phillies as a 3B/1B

A Mix of New and Familiar Faces Look to Repeat as Governors’ Cup Champs


January 27, 2020 12:04 PM


COLUMBUS, OH – The Cleveland Indians have announced the player development assignments for their Triple-A affiliate, the Columbus Clippers. With 2019 Governors’ Cup-winning Manager Tony Mansolino moving into a new role in the organization, last year’s Hitting Coach, Andy Tracy will take over as the Clippers skipper for 2020.


On the change in clubhouse leadership, Clippers President and General Manager, Ken Schnacke said, “I am very happy to have Andy Tracy following Tony Mansolino as our new Manager. Tony has elected to become a roving instructor so he can spend more time at home with his young children. Andy did a great job with our hitters last year, and being from central Ohio, he will be a popular figure in the community.”

Andy Tracy begins his second year with the Clippers, which is also his second year in the Indians organization. The Ohio native was a 16th round pick of the Montreal Expos out of Bowling Green State University in 1996. Tracy played in the Majors with the Expos, Colorado Rockies and Philadelphia Phillies, as well as playing in the New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles and Arizona Diamondbacks systems before retiring as a player and moving into coaching. Before joining the Cleveland organization, he spent seven years coaching for the Phillies, six as a minor league hitting coordinator and one managing the Williamsport Crosscutters (Short-Season).


Hitting Coach duties will be undertaken by first year Clippers coach Jason Esposito. Esposito joins Columbus after spending last season in the same role with the Lake County Captains. This will be his third year in the Indians organization, all as a Hitting Coach. He also worked with the Indians AZL team in ’18. Esposito had a four-year playing career in the minors for the Orioles after Baltimore drafted him with their 2nd round pick in 2011 out of Vanderbilt.


Rigo Beltran provides continuity as Clippers Pitching Coach for the second year in a row. A ’91 draftee of the St. Louis Cardinals, Beltran pitched in the Majors for the Cardinals, Mets and Rockies. The 2020 season will be his sixth year leading a pitching staff within the Indians system, following a seven-year stint coaching with the Cincinnati Reds.


Kyle Hudson will be back with the Clippers for a second stint as bench coach, the same position he filled last season.


Jeremy Heller returns for his second season as the Clippers trainer, while Travis Roberson will become the Strength & Conditioning Coach, replacing Scott Nealon.


The 2020 season begins April 9th at Huntington Park against the Louisville Bats. For more information, log on to or call (614) 462-5250.






Cleveland Indians announce extended-netting for 2020 at Progressive Field

11:47 AM EST


CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians Wednesday announced their plans for extended netting at Progressive Field down both foul lines prior to Opening Day 2020.

In consultation with MLB and architects to assess the best design within our ballpark configuration, the Indians have made the following netting changes to protect fans while providing the best possible viewing experience:

• Extended netting: The netting will now be extended to cover the area from section 128 in the right-field corner to section 174 in the left-field corner.

• Height increased and canopy removed: The Indians have also extended the height of the netting from 23 feet to 33 feet and have removed the existing canopy. This will enable foul balls to once again reach the fans in the lower bowl.

Players and fans will still be able to take part in pregame autographs through the netting.

“Along with 29 other MLB teams, we will be extending our netting to enhance the safety measures in place to protect our fans at Progressive Field,” said vice president, ballpark operations Jim Folk. “We are looking to maximize safety while minimizing obstructing views and will be utilizing the same netting material that we have had recent success with in the ballpark.”

B-roll and on-camera interviews regarding extended netting will take place during the Cleveland Indians 2020 “What’s New” media event prior to Opening Day. The “What’s New” event date is still being determined.

Renderings of the extended netting can be found here:
