The OKC Dodgers, Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, take the field in 2023 under the guidance of fourth-year manager Travis Barbary. In 2022, Barbary led the OKC Dodgers to an 84-62 record, finishing one game out of first place in the PCL East Division, although the team held at least a share of first place for 111 days throughout the season. The 84 wins were team’s second-most during the Bricktown era (since 1998). The team has finished in second place in its division during each of the last two seasons.
Barbary’s 2023 coaching staff includes returning hitting coach Manny Burriss, who is back with the team for a third season. They will be joined by pitching coaches Doug Mathis and Justin DeFratus. Mathis begins his first season in OKC after spending the last three seasons on the coaching staff of the Texas Rangers and DeFratus returns for his third season in OKC. Bench coach Chris Gutierrez comes to Triple-A after holding the same role with Double-A Tulsa last season.
