Former All-Star catcher Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez will return to the Texas Rangers organization as Special Assistant to the General Manager/Instructor/Ambassador.

What does that title mean? The Rangers released this about his new position with the team:

Rodriguez will assist the Rangers Baseball Operations group in a number of areas, including amateur, professional, and international scouting, player instruction on the major and minor league level, and talent evaluation. He will also be involved in community and marketing endeavors on behalf of the club.

Pudge has already been traveling with Rangers General Manager Ron Daniels and other personnel on a visit to the Dominican Republic last month. He is expected to join the team at the spring training facility in Surprise, Arizona late next week.

Pudge retired from baseball last year after a 21-year career.
