After Rowson and Beauregard joined, manager AJ Hinch began searching for the final piece of the puzzle. He conducted interviews in Las Vegas in conjunction with the general manager meetings. On Saturday, Brdar agreed to a multi-year contract.

Both Brdar and Beauregard received hitting coach titles, while Rowson is the assistant hitting coach.
