Sox minor-league coaching staffs set

The Boston Red Sox announced Thursday the 2015 field staffs for each of their seven minor-league affiliates.

No team will see a change at manager. Also of note, Rich Gedman, Double-A Portland’s hitting coach last season, will fill that role with Triple-A Pawtucket -- a job previously held by Dave Joppie the past two seasons. Joppie will take over Gedman’s old spot with Portland.

Portland’s pitching coach from last season, Bob Kipper, will also move up to Pawtucket to fill Rich Sauveur’s old post. Sauveur resigned at the end of last season after serving seven seasons as the PawSox pitching coach.
