Braves rearranging their minors pitching coaches

Botelho, Derek 8742 500px.jpgI love watching pitching coaches do their thing, and I particularly like the guys in the Atlanta organization. Derek Botelho is a hands-on coach, and I have several photos of him instructing young pitchers when he was with the Mississippi Braves.

He’s going to be moving up to serve as Triple-A Gwinnett’s pitching coach in 2009, and I should have a chance to photograph him again this year.
