DENVER -- The Rockies have parted ways with longtime Triple-A manager Glenallen Hill and two other Minor League coaches, assistant general manager-player development Zach Wilson confirmed Wednesday.

Hill, Double-A Hartford hitting coach Lee Stevens and Class A Asheville hitting coach Norberto "Paco" Martin are no longer with the organization, Wilson acknowledged. Wilson did not elaborate beyond saying that the instructors “are not returning next year.” The moves were first reported by

Hill had been with the organization since 2004, including 2007-2012 on the Major League staff as first-base coach. He took over as Triple-A manager in '06 when Chad Kreuter left to become the head coach at the University of Southern California, and ran the Colorado Springs affiliate from '13-14 and Albuquerque since '15.

Stevens was with the Rockies for seven seasons -- hitting coach at Rookie League Grand Junction from 2013-15 (and '17), Class A Advanced Modesto (now Lancaster) in '16 and Hartford from '18-19. Martin spent his three seasons with the Rockies at Asheville.
