St. Louis Cardinals Hire John Mabry As Assistant Hitting Coach

On Friday afternoon, the St. Louis Cardinals announced the addition of John Mabry to new manager Mike Matheny's coaching staff. Mabry is the team's new assistant hitting coach; he has a long history with both Matheny and the Cardinals organization:

Mabry, 41, was a sixth-round draft pick of the Cardinals in 1991. During his 14-year career, Mabry played for eight teams. He spent most of his career with the Cardinals, last playing for the local nine in 2005.

Matheny and Mabry are good friends.

The Cardinals also made some adjustments to their training staff, moving Barry Weinberg from the major-league staff to a Senior Medical Adviser post and promoting Chris Conroy to assistant trainer.
