OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – The Athletics have hired Al Pedrique as their first-base coach for manager Bob Melvin’s staff.
Oakland announced the move Monday and said Mike Aldrete would move to assistant hitting coach and Marcus Jensen will shift from that role to bullpen coach.

Pedrique spent the last five seasons managing in the New York Yankees farm system. He got credit for mentoring AL MVP runner-up Aaron Judge and slugger Gary Sanchez at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the Triple-A International League.
Pedrique had previously served as third-base coach and interim manager for Arizona in 2004, third-base coach for Houston in 2009 and bench coach for the Astros in 2010-11.

Pedrique played 174 games in the majors for the New York Mets, Pittsburgh and Detroit.
