Giants fill out coaching staff, hiring Alguacil, Nevin

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has finalized his coaching staff, naming Phil Nevin third base coach and Jose Alguacil first base coach.

Nevin played for Bochy with the San Diego Padres and spent the past three seasons as manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks' Triple-A Reno Aces, while Alguacil managed the Giants' Triple-A affiliate Sacramento River Cats last season. He played in the Giants' system for six seasons from 1993-98 as an infielder then returned to the organization as a roving instructor in 2007.

The wild-card Giants, who lost in a four-game NL Division Series to the eventual World Series champion Chicago Cubs, didn't retain first base coach Bill Hayes or third base coach Roberto Kelly after the season.

Also Monday, the Giants announced they added right-hander Ian Gardeck back to the 40-man roster.
