Dave Trembley takes job with Atlanta Braves
Five months after being fired by the Orioles, former manager and baseball lifer Dave Trembley has landed the minor league field coordinator position with the Atlanta Braves, according to an industry source.
He is also expected to supervise the instruction of coaches and players throughout the Braves’ organization.
Trembley, who has been out of work since he was fired by the Orioles on June 3, could not be reached for comment.
Trembley, 59, spent eight years with the Orioles organization, including nearly three full years as manager, before he was dismissed after the team started 2010 with a 15-39 record and was buried in last in the American League East.
In parts of four seasons as manager, Trembley’s Orioles posted a 187-283 (.398 winning percentage) record. He spent more than two decades in the minors, mostly as a manager, before being promoted to the big leagues in 2007 as the Orioles’ bullpen coach.
Trembley worked part of that season as bench coach when Tom Trebelhorn was on personal leave and then was named the team’s interim manager when Sam Perlozzo was fired June 18.
Throughout his baseball career, Trembley, a former high school teacher and coach, has been known for his ability to relate to and instruct young players.
