Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly and nine of his coaches are returning in 2014

Mattingly, a finalist for the National League Manager of the Year award after guiding the Dodgers to the 2013 NLCS, returns for a fourth season. This was announced by no less than Dodgers general manager Ned Colleti on Nov. 11, per the team's official website.

The Dodgers' coaching staff remains relatively intact with the exception of Tim Wallach becoming bench coach and the hiring of Lorenzo Bundy as third base coach. Wallach, who was previously a candidate for the managerial jobs with the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Marinerstakes over the position vacated by Trey Hillman, who was fired by the team last month. 

Rounding up the staff are Chuck Crim (bullpen coach), Rick Honeycutt (pitching coach), Davey Lopes (first base coach), Mark McGwire (hitting coach), Ken Howell (assistant pitching coach), John Valentin (assistant hitting coach), Manny Mota (coach) and Steve Yeager (coach).

However, it is without any question that the main issue was retaining Mattingly, who will battle it out for NL Manager of the Year honors with the Atlanta Braves' Fredi Gonzalez and the Pittsburgh Pirates' Clint Hurdle. 

The candidacy all but completes a remarkable turnaround for Mattingly, who was on the verge of getting fired in June but somehow managed to come up just two games short of the 2013 World Series

Aside from this and guiding the Dodgers to a 92-70 record and winning the 2013 NL West title, Mattingly also helped the team become just the fourth in major league history to finish first after being in last place after July 1. He helped spark a 42-8 tear that began on June 22 to clinch the division for the Dodgers. 

He and the Dodgers are in the middle of talks regarding a new, multi-year contract, per ESPN Los Angeles' Mark Saxon.

Coming back from Tommy John surgery is no great feat. Returning after a second such operation is nearly miraculous…just ask Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson and New York Yankees set up man Shawn Kelley. But getting back into the swing of things following a third Tommy John operation? Yeah, Atlanta Braves lefty Jonny Venters might have his work cut out for him. Jonny Venters says after talking to Dr Andrews and his family, that he will giv ...
