CLEVELAND (AP) - Brad Komminsk, the manager at Class A Kinston last year, was promoted Thursday by the Cleveland Indians to manager of the Double-A Akron Aeros.
Komminsk, an outfielder who played with the Indians in 1989, went 89-51 in his second season at Kinston.
He replaces Chris Bando, who went 68-74 in his only season in Akron and was demoted to manage Class A Mahoning Valley, in the Youngstown area.
Ted Kubiak was promoted from Class A Columbus to Kinston. Torey Lovullo, who played for eight major league organizations in a 14-year career, was hired to manage Columbus.
