Astros Minor League Coaching Staffs for 2012

Here is the complete list of all the coaching changes announced for all Astros minor league affiliates for 2012.

I went through the list and noted all of the changes for Manager, Pitching Coach and Hitting Coach for each team.  The odd men out are John Moses (Hitting Coach for Corpus), Tom Spencer (Manager for Lancaster) and Travis Driskill (Pitching Coach for Lancaster).  Leon Roberts (Hitting Coach for OKC) is new to the system.  Ivan de Jesus (Manager for Lexington) and Cesar Cedeno (Hitting Coach for Greeneville) are returning to the system.
