Greg Maddux has been hired by the Texas Rangers as a special assistant to the general manager.

Mike isn't the only Maddux in Arlington. Greg Maddux, Mike's brother, has been hired by the Rangers as a special assistant to the general manager. 

"We're excited to add Greg to our group and look forward to him contributing to the development of our young pitchers," said Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels. "He is considered by many to be an all-around bright baseball mind and should fit in well with our existing staff."

In his role with the Rangers, Maddux will be in uniform during spring training as an extra instructor for both the major and minor league staffs, along with visiting the club's farm affiliates during the regular season. It is expected that Maddux will participate in the Fall Instructional League and in any minicamps the club conducts.     

Maddux enjoyed one of the most successful careers in history, winning 355 games in his 23 year career. Maddux is a four time Cy Young winner as well, winning the award in 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995. 

It certainly won't hurt to have somebody like Maddux around the organization, and it likely helps in keeping Texas' pitching coach, Mike Maddux, in Arlington as well.
