Today the Staten Island Yankees announced that Julio Mosquera would skipper the Baby Bombers during the 2017 season. It will be Mosquera’s third stint on the coaching staff of Staten Island, his first as a manager.
Mosquera made his managerial debut during the 2015 season for the Gulf Coast League Yankees; he returned to the Himes Complex last season to lead the GCL Yankees 1 team.
Before taking over the reigns as manager of GCL in 2015 Julio spent nine seasons as the catching coordinator for the Yankees and before that spent 15 years as a player with various organizations including the Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Milwaukee Brewers and the Yankees themselves.
In 2006 Julio earned a New York-Penn League Championship ring as a member of the Staten Island Yankees coaching staff. He worked closely with catcher Francisco Cervelli who was in just his second season in the organization. He returned for the 2007 season where he once again served as a coach for the Baby Bombers.
Joining the Staten Island Yankees as hitting coach for the 2017 season will be Kevin Mahoney. Mahoney served as the hitting coach last season for the Pulaski Yankees; it was his second season as a coach in the organization after he retired from playing. He was originally selected by the Yankees in the 23rd round of the 2009 First-Year-Player Draft and spent five seasons in the organization before playing independent baseball for one year. He owned a career .252 hitter in the minors making it as high as Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2013 his final season in the system.
Returning for his second season with Staten Island is pitching coach Travis Phelps. Phelps made his coaching debut last season with Staten Island and lead the team to a combined 2.82 ERA and 644 strikeouts, good for third in the league in both categories. Under his leadership, the 2016 Staten Island Yankees finished the season tied in the league for the most shutouts with 10.
Before joining the Yankees he worked as a sports agent and ran a baseball training facility in St. Petersburg, Florida. Phelps was originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 89th round of the 1996 draft and appeared in 79 games at the major league level where he earned a 3-5 record and a 4.34 ERA in three seasons.
Defensive coach Teuris Olivares will return to the Staten Island Yankees for his third season as defensive coach. Before joining the Baby Bombers as a full-time coach in 2015, he was a coach for the Dominican Summer League Yankees from 2011-2014.
He began his career in professional baseball as a player with the Yankees in 1996; he reached as high as Triple-A before being cut and bounced around the Atlantic League with the Newark Bears, Camden RiverSharks, Somerset Patriots and the Road Warriors.
