Royal name Doug Henry bullpen coach


KANSAS CITY, MO (October 10, 2012) – The Kansas City Royals today named Doug Henry the club’s bullpen coach for the 2013 season.  Henry, who served as the Royals interim bullpen coach the final two weeks of the 2012 season, takes over for Steve Foster, who was named the club’s Special Assistant to GM/Minor League Pitching Coordinator on August 31.  Henry has been with the Royals organization since 2008, spending the last three seasons as pitching coach of the Omaha Storm Chasers (AAA).

“Doug has worked as a pitching coach or coordinator at nearly every minor league level and brings a strong working relationship with a majority of our current Major League relief pitchers,” Royals’ General Manager Dayton Moore said.  “His experience in the game will be invaluable to our coaching staff as well as the pitchers he’ll interact with on a daily basis.”

"I'm happy to have Doug join our Major League staff," said Royals' manager Ned Yost.  "He's a former big league pitcher with a ton of experience and has proven to be an excellent pitching coach in the minor leagues.  He also has a familiarity with our young pitchers in the system which is a plus."

The Royals plan to hire a hitting coach at a later date.
