The Indians got some good news today, as first base coach Sandy Alomar Jr. has decided to stay put with the Tribe. The former Indians catcher had been approached by the White Sox to be their bench coach a little over two weeks ago.
On top of staying with the Indians, Alomar also gets new two-year deal with an option.

Alomar at one point was the Tribe skipper for six games after the team fired Manny Acta in September of 2012. He was up for the full-time manager job that offseason before the job went to Terry Francona.
The former catcher was the bench coach for the 2013 season under Francona, but then Brad Mills took over the bench coach spot the following season and Alomar went to coach first, where he’s been ever since.
