Luis Matos will manage Single-A Great Lakes in 2015, the Dodgers announced Thursday.

Matos replaces Bill Haselman, who managed the Loons to a 66-73 record in 2014. Haselman was originally re-hired as the Loons’ manager, with Matos as a third coach. When P.J. Forbes resigned as the manager of Single-A Rancho Cucamonga on Feb. 2, Haselman moved up a level, creating the vacancy at Great Lakes.

Matos was a hitting coach this past winter for Crillos de Caguas of the Puerto Rican Winter League and also served as a coach in MLB’s Puerto Rico Youth Summer League.
