Razor Shines has been named by the Los Angeles Dodgers to manage the Chattanooga Lookouts for the 2014 season. Shines replaces Jody Reed who managed the 2013 Lookouts' team.

A native of Durham, N.C., he played first base for four years with the Montreal Expos. He was a base coach for the New York Mets 2009-2010. He also was a coach for the Chicago White Sox. He managed the Birmingham Barons of the Southern League and the Clearwater Thrashers of the Florida State League. 

Shines, who has over 500 wins as a minor league manager, moves to Double-A after managing at  Class-A Great Lakes last season. Although 57-years old now, he is considered one of the sharpest managers in the minor leagues.

Damon Berryhill will manage AAA Albuquerque, and P.J. Forbes will manage Class A Rancho Cucamonga. Berryhill moves to Triple-A after five seasons and four playoff appearances with Ogden. Forbes comes to Rancho Cucamonga after leading his Rookie-level squad to a division title in 2013.

Bill Haselman will be at Class A Great Lakes and Lee Tinsley at Rookie-advanced Ogden. John Shoemaker will manage the Rookie-level team.
