Wakamatsu, 51, played one season with the Chicago White Sox in 1991 before moving to coaching. He served as the Rangers bench coach from 2003 to 2006 and was named the manager of the Seattle Mariners in 2008. He was fired in 2010 after going 127-147 in his two years there, but has since spent time as a bench coach in Toronto under John Farrell and now in Kansas City under Ned Yost.
