Acta rewarded for turning around Indians; 2013 option picked up


The Cleveland Indians management is pleased with manager Manny Acta’s performance with the young team, that they have picked up the 2013 option on his contract.

Acta was signed through 2012, and the Indians rewarded him by exercising the option for 2013. After two seasons, his record is 149-175.

Acta and his staff kept the Indians in contention in the AL Central Division race until injuries took control and they finished at 80-82, good for second place. The 80 wins is an 11-game improvement over 2010.

He will be losing two members off of his coaching staff. Bench coach Tim Tolman revealed earlier this week that he has Parkinson’s disease and will not return, and pitching coach Tim Belcher stepped down to spend more time with his family.

Indians general manager Chris Antonelli said the remaining members of the coaching staff will return in 2012. Sandy Alomar Jr., the first base coach will become Acta’s bench coach. Hitting coach Bruce Fields, third-base coach Steve Smith and bullpen coach Scott Radinsky also will return.
