And then there was only one vacancy.
Bruce Hines, a 52-year-old veteran coach, has been hired as the Seattle Mariners third base coach – the fifth member of manager Don Wakamatsu's first big-league staff.
For the past three years, Hines had been the minor league field coordinator for the Angels, in charge of outfield, base-running and bunting instruction.
A long-time minor league manager and coach, Hines all but completes the Mainers new staff. The only job left: batting coach.
