Dabney promoted to Triple-A pitching coach

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers have promoted Fred Dabney to be pitching coach at Triple-A Nashville, a post vacated when Chris Bosio left for a Major League job with the Chicago Cubs.

Dabney has coached in the organization for eight seasons, including the past seven as pitching coach at Class A Brevard County. He also served as interim bullpen coach with the Brewers from April 23-May 23, 2010 after Stan Kyles underwent prostate surgery.

The Brewers hired Mark Dewey to replace Dabney at Brevard County. Dewey spent the last two seasons as pitching coach with the Washington Wild Things, an Independent League team, and pitched 205 Major League games over six seasons with the Giants (1990, '95-96), Mets (1992) and Pirates (1993-94).
