PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have named Lorenzo Bundy as their first base coach.

The 50-year-old Bundy replaces Lee Tinsley, who left to join Don Wakamatsu's staff in Seattle. Bundy served as a hitting coach in the Diamondbacks' farm system from 2003-06 and was the Diamondbacks' bench coach for three months in the 2004 season.

Bundy spent the past two seasons managing the Las Vegas 51s, the Los Angeles Dodgers' AAA affiliate in the Pacific Coast League.
