The Los Angeles Dodgers fired bench coach Trey Hillman a day after a press conference in which manager Don Mattingly expressed frustration with his current contact status.

The team also let go advance scout Wade Taylor, and athletic trainer Sue Falsone resigned Monday.

Mattingly's $1.4 million option for next season was guaranteed when the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series.

The Dodgers have not announced any of the moves.

"This organization treated me great," Hillman told "I think this organization wants to get somewhere real quick and they just didn't feel like I was best for the manager and the players."

"It didn't shock me to hear what [Mattingly] had to say," Hillman said. "When you're in this market, there's a lot of pressure on you and you need to have leverage.
