Mike Goff will return as Augusta’s manager for the second season after leading the GreenJackets to an 82-55 record in 2013, the best in the league.
Pitching coach Steve Kline will return, as will hitting coach Hector Borg. Joining Borg as co-hitting coach is Todd Linden, a former first-round draft pick out of LSU who played five years in the major leagues between the Giants and Florida Marlins. Linden will be in his first season as a coach after playing for Triple-A Fresno the past two years.
The GreenJackets will have a new trainer in Andrew Benning, and a new strength and conditioning coach in Cesar Vasquez.
Augusta will open the 2014 season at home against the Charleston RiverDogs on April 3.
