The Cubs promoted Bill Dancy to Triple-A Iowa manager, named Tom Beyers the hitting coordinator and Dennis Lewallyn pitching coordinator, and added former big leaguer Mariano Duncan as Double-A Tennessee hitting coach. The team made the announcements as it released the Minor League assignments for 2010 on Thursday. Dancy takes over at Iowa for Ryne Sandberg, who left the Cubs organization after not getting the manager’s job with the big league team. Sandberg will manage the Phillies’ Triple-A Lehigh Valley team in 2011.
Tennessee will have a new staff and be led by manager Brian Harper, a former catcher for 16 big league seasons.
