ARLINGTON, TEXAS — The Cardinals’ firm commitment to modernizing their offensive approach under the guidance of Jeff Albert — which an executive once described as “all in” — will continue into 2021.
Hitting coach Albert, pitching Mike Maddux and bench coach Oliver Marmol will return along with the rest of manager Mike Shildt’s coaching staff, president of baseball operations John Mozeliak confirmed Monday. A formal announcement is expected after the World Series.
The decision on the staff is the first of several greeting the Cardinals once the offseason officially begins this week. Within 24 hours of the end of the World Series, the Cardinals must make a decision on the $12.
