Minor-league manager Daren Brown has been added to the Seattle Mariners coaching staff.
The Mariners announced the move on Thursday. Earlier this week, third-base coach Jeff Datz announced he had been diagnosed with cancer and could be missing time while he seeks treatment options. The Mariners said Brown will be an extra coach and fill-in third-base coach when Datz is away.

The Mariners will return most of their minor-league managers from last year, though some assignments have changed at the lower levels. Daren Brown is returning for his sixth season at the helm of Class AAA Tacoma. Jim Pankovits is back at Double-A Jackson, and Eddie Menchaca returns at Class A Clinton.
