PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks say Mel Stottlemyre Jr. and Joel Youngblood will be minor league coordinators next season.

Diamondbacks director of player development Mike Bell said Monday that Stottlemyre will be organization’s short-season pitching coordinator and Youngblood will be the outfield and base-running coordinator.

Stottlemyre was Arizona’s pitching coach in 2009 and 2010. Youngblood was third base coach for half of last season.

Brett Butler returns as manager of Triple-A Reno, and Mark Haley stays on as manager of Class A South Bend.

Double-A Mobile will be led by Turner Ward, who is making his managerial debut after spending the last three seasons as the BayBears’ hitting coach. Audo Vicente will manage Class A Yakima and Kelly Stinnett will manage the rookie-level Arizona League Diamondbacks.
