Houston (CBS Houston)– The Houston Astros announced their first change in personnel Tuesday afternoon, since finishing with the worst record in baseball and franchise history, 51-111.

Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow reassigned their pitching coach Doug Brocail as the new special assistant. It was also announced that first base coach Dave Clark and bullpen coach Dennis Martinez will be released.

The Astros had a major-league worst 4.79 ERA.

“It was a tough year on the field this year at the Major League level, despite the significant progress in continuing to build our player pipeline,” said Luhnow. “Bo and I discussed how we can improve next year and came to the conclusion that bringing in a few new and different voices would help.”
