From the team’s official release-

The Cleveland Indians and Manager MANNY ACTA today finalized the Major League Coaching Staff heading into the 2012 season. Today, the Indians promoted SCOTT RADINSKY to Pitching Coach and named DAVE MILLER Bullpen Coach and TOM WIEDENBAUER First Base Coach.

Radinsky, 43, recently completed his second season as Cleveland’s Major League Bullpen Coach. The Tribe’s 11-game improvement in terms of wins from 2010 to 2011 was largely attributed to its improved pitching staff and strong bullpen. In 2011 the Indians bullpen compiled an ERA of 3.71 (492.0IP, 457H, 203ER, .246AVG), the 5th lowest relief ERA among the fourteen American League teams. The Indians team ERA of 4.23 was also an improvement over 2010’s total of 4.30. Scott has been a member of the Indians organization since 2004 and appeared in 557 Major League games over an 11-year career from 1990-2001.

Miller, 45, recently concluded his tenth season as the Indians Pitching Coordinator in the Player Development System. He has been a member of the Indians organization for the last 19 seasons since 1993. The 2011 season ended with ten (10) homegrown pitchers on the Major League pitching staff that were developed in the Indians minor league system during Miller’s tenure as Pitching Coordinator. The Wilmington, NC native played professionally for seven (7) seasons in the Baltimore organization after being selected by the O’s in the 1st round of the January 1986 draft.

Wiedenbauer, 52, will coach First Base and will also oversee outfield play and baserunning fundamentals. Tom enjoyed his first season with the organization in 2011 as Field Coordinator, organizing and overseeing all the activity within the Indians Player Development System. He also had several stints providing instruction with the Major League club in spring training and during the regular season. Prior to joining the Indians, Wiedenbauer spent 35 seasons in the Houston Astros organization from 1976-2010 as a player, coach, manager, coordinator and professional scout. He managed Manny Acta in 1989 at Class AA Columbus (GA).

Not included in the release is the news that Alan Zinter will take over as the Minor League hitting instructor.

Also not included in the Indians’ release (for obvious reasons) is the news that Drew Pomeranz was arrested early this morning for disturbing the peace-

“Colorado Rockies pitcher Drew Pomeranz(notes) was arrested early Friday morning, accused of disturbing the peace in Oxford, Miss. Oxford police arrested Pomeranz at 1:25 a.m.; he was released on a cash bond at 4:40 a.m. Pomeranz was listed in jail documents by his first name Thomas. The left-handed pitcher, who was part of the Ubaldo Jimenez(notes) trade, made his major league debut in September. Pomeranz was 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA in four starts for the Rockies. He struck out 13 and walked five in 18.1 innings.”

So there’s that.
