The Skipper's First Mates announced

Joining Riggleman for the Wahoo's first season on the bench will be hitting coach Tony Jaramillo and pitching coach Tom Brown. Last season was Jaramillo's second season at the Advanced-A level, but his first season with the Bakersfield Blaze out in the California League. While there, the Blaze finished second in the California League in hitting with a team average of .282, and they led the league with the fewest strikeouts as a team. Brown returns for his third season as the Double-A pitching coach for the Reds. Prior to joining the Reds system, he spent time as a minor league pitching coach, mostly at the Triple-A level for the Marlins, Giants, Padres and Orioles. As a player, Brown pitched in both the Kansas City and Seattle chains, making six Major League appearances for the Mariners in 1978.

Both players have a ton of Minor League issued team set cards.
