Triple-A Round Rock manager Bobby Jones, who has spent 26 years in the Texas Rangers organization as a coach, will join the big league coaching staff in 2014.

It hasn't been decided whether Jones will coach first base, as the club has one more spot to fill on the staff. That slot will go to someone with catching experience, and either that coach or Jones will also coach first with Gary Pettis staying at third base.

It's likely that Double-A Frisco manager Steve Buechele will take Jones' place at Round Rock.

Jones is a favorite among the players and has spent much of his baseball life with the Rangers.
