KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Royals have promoted Terry Bradshaw to hitting coach and Cal Eldred to pitching coach as part of a series of moves Tuesday to manager Ned Yost's coaching staff.

Bradshaw takes over for Dale Sveum, who was promoted to bench coach after spending the past four years as hitting coach. He spent the past five seasons as the minor league hitting coordinator.

Eldred replaces Dave Eiland, who was not retained after the season. The longtime big league pitcher spent the past two seasons as an assistant to general manager Dayton Moore.

The Royals also announced Tuesday that Northwest Arkansas manager Vance Wilson will take over as bullpen coach. Pedro Grifol will continue to oversee catchers, Mike Jirschele will return for his fifth season as third base coach and Mitch Maier will be the new first base coach.
