The sudden passing of Vikings offensive line coach Tony Sparano left the team with an opening at a key staff position. The Vikings will fill it with a pair of coaches.
The Vikings have announced that Clancy Barone and Andrew Janocko will serve as co-offensive line coaches. Barone previously served as the team’s tight ends coach. Janocko had been the assistant offensive line coach.
Former Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing will replace Barone as the tight ends coach. He previously spent 2001 through 2005 with the Vikings Morgan Rielly Jersey , in a variety of roles.
Coach Mike Zimmer, a defensive specialist Radek Faksa Jersey , told PFT on Saturday that he’ll likely spend a extra time on the offensive side of the ball this year, due to the absence of Sparano. John DeFillippo is the team’s new offensive coordinator Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , replacing new Giants coach Pat Shurmur.
The Atlanta Braves have reinstated right-handed pitcher Arodys Vizcaino from the 10-day disabled list.
The reliever had been sidelined since June 21 with right shoulder inflammation. Vizcaino threw a successful bullpen Monday, but the team waited until Tuesday to activate the 27-year old.
Vizcaino is 2-2 with a 1.82 ERA with 15 saves in 17 opportunities. A.J. Minter has earned a pair of saves while throwing seven scoreless innings in Vizcaino’s absence.
Manager Brian Snitker indicated that Vizcaino would resume his role as closer Chris Tierney Jersey , but would not use him in the same manner as he did prior to the injury. Vizcaino pitched in four games in five days before the injury.
Outfielder Michael Reed was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room. The 25-year old was called up Monday.
