G-Braves staff stays the same

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A change at the top spot didn't have any effect on the Gwinnett Braves field staff for the 2013 season.

Despite the hiring of Randy Ready to replace Dave Brundage, hitting coach Jaime Dismuke, pitching coach Marty Reed and trainer Mike Graus all return to the Atlanta Braves Class AAA affiliate for the upcoming season.

Graus is the longest tenured with the Class AAA club, spending the past eight years with the team and the past 21 in the Braves organization. Dismuke joined the team when it moved from Richmond and will begin his fifth season and Reed enters his third with the G-Braves.
