Wes Helms is joining Chicago’s farm system as the manager at Charlotte. Justin Jirschele moves to Birmingham after managing Class A Winston-Salem.
Former major league first baseman Ben Broussard takes over as hitting coordinator after serving as the leadership and development coordinator from 2018-19. And Everett Teaford is Chicago’s pitching coordinator after working two seasons as the assistant pitching coordinator. Former White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar, whose career was shortened by a brain aneurysm during a game in 2018, is the pitching coach at Winston-Salem.
They will work under former major league second baseman Chris Getz, entering his fourth season as Chicago’s director of player development.
