KANSAS CITY, MO (October 3, 2013) — The Kansas City Royals today announced they have added Dale Sveum to the 2014 coaching staff. The former manager of the Chicago Cubs will be in charge of infield instruction while his in-game responsibilities will be determined at a later date. The Royals also announced that the major league coaching contracts of Chino Cadahia and Eddie Rodriguez have not been renewed, with Cadahia offered an opportunity to be reassigned within the organization.

Sveum, 49, spent the last two seasons as the manager of the Chicago Cubs, after six years on the coaching staff of the Milwaukee Brewers, including three years with current Royals’ manager Ned Yost. An infielder during his 12-year major league career, Sveum served as both third base and bench coach during his time with Milwaukee. He also spent two seasons (2004-05) as the third base coach for the Boston Red Sox, including their World Series title year of 2004. Sveum’s playing career spanned Milwaukee (1986-91), Philadelphia (1992), Chicago White Sox (1992), Oakland (1993), Seattle (1994), Pittsburgh (1996-97, 1999) and the New York Yankees (1998).
