Mariners hire Dan Wilson as minor-league coach

SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners have hired former catcher Dan Wilson as the roving minor-league catching coordinator for the organization.

The Mariners announced the hiring Tuesday. Wilson will work with catchers at all levels of the organization, beginning with spring training and continuing through the season. He will travel to each of Seattle’s minor-league affiliates to work with catchers.

The 44-year-old Wilson spent the majority of his 14 big-league seasons in Seattle. He caught more games than any player in Mariners history and ended his career with the sixth-highest fielding percentage for a catcher in major-league history.

Wilson was an All-Star in 1996 and was inducted into the team hall of fame in 2012.
