The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Nationals have promoted Bob Henley to third base coach.

Henley had been the Nationals' minor league field coordinator.

His new post was announced by the team on Twitter on Tuesday.

Henley replaces Trent Jewett, who was Washington's third base coach for the past three seasons but left the club last week to take a job as the bench coach with the Seattle Mariners.
