The Pirates have hired Don Kelly to serve as the bench coach on Derek Shelton’s staff, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network. Many view Kelly , who has made a quick ascent up the coaching ranks, to be a future manager , but he’ll have to cut his teeth in the Pittsburgh dugout for the time being.

Even if Kelly doesn’t wind up in the managerial chair in Detroit, he’ll certainly find himself in the mix in future searches.
