Royals manager Ned Yost looked to his past Thursday after deciding to shake up his coaching staff by dismissing third-base coach Eddie Rodriguez and bench coach Chino Cadahia. Yost tapped Dale Sveum fired earlier this week as manager of the Chicago Cubs to fill one of two vacancies. Whether Sveum will serve as bench coach or infield coach will be determined later. “He’s a superb infield coach” Yost said. “He’s been a third-base and a bench coach for me. He was also a hitting coach at Milwaukee and he excelled at all of those positions.” Sveum 49 served three seasons under Yost in Milwaukee and stepped in as interim manager when Yost was fired late in the 2008 season. Sveum spent the last two years as the Cubs’ manager. “You don’t want to get out of the game” Sveum said earlier this week “unless you want to be away for a long time. I love baseball and love being a part of it.” Yost said the rest of his staff will return for 2014: Pitching coach Dave Eiland hitting coach Pedro Grifol outfield/first-base coach Rusty Kuntz and bullpen coach Doug Henry. Rodriguez 54 departs after four seasons with the Royals including the last three as third-base coach and infield coach. Cadahia 55 spent the last two years as bench coach but missed the final month of the regular season on personal leave because of a private family matter. The Royals plan to offer Cadahia another position as yet undetermined within the organization. Rodriguez is leaving the club. Eiland 47 joined the staff prior to the 2012 season; Grifol 43 was promoted last June from a minor-league role; Kuntz 58 rejoined the on-field staff in August 2012; Henry 49 just completed his first year.
