ATLANTA - Doug Dascenzo has been hired as the Atlanta Braves' third-base coach.

The 49-year-old replaces Brian Snitker, who becomes named manager of the Braves' Triple-A Gwinnett farm team.

Snitker, Atlanta's third-base coach for seven seasons, returns to the minor leagues after serving as Triple-A Richmond manager in 2006 and four seasons as manager at Double-A Greenville and Mississippi.

General manager Frank Wren said Monday that Dascenzo will fill a need on the staff coaching outfielders and baserunning. He was the Braves' minor league roving outfield and baserunning instructor in 2013.

The remainder of the Braves staff returns, including hitting coaches Greg Walker and Scott Fletcher, bench coach Carlos Tosca, pitching coach Roger McDowell, first-base coach Terry Pendleton and bullpen coach Eddie Perez.
