Joe Torre was hired as the Los Angeles Dodgers new manager on Thursday and is expected to bring Evansvilles Don Mattingly with him to LA. Torre signs a three-year deal believed to be worth around $ 4 million dollars per season. Torre was negotiating to choose his own coaching staff and to be in charge of player personnel. "Donnie Baseball" was Torres bench coach this past season in New York. Mattingly spent the previous three years as the Yankees hitting coach. Several Internet sites are suggesting Mattingly will be Torres hitting coach in Los Angeles. The Dodgers told FOX 7 Sports on Thursday that they havent hired any of Torres assistant coaches. However, Yahoo Sports is reporting that Mattingly, Larry Bowa and Lee Mazzilli will be part of Torres staff. The move makes sense for Mattingly if he hopes to be a manager in the future. Dons son, Preston, also plays in the Dodgers farm system. A news conference is scheduled for Monday at Noon, Central time, to officially introduce Torre.
