Robert "Bobby" Cuellar (born August 20, 1952 in Alice, Texas) is the bullpen coach of the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball. He is a former professional baseball player who played briefly with the Texas Rangers in 1977 as a relief pitcher. He is a graduate from the University of Texas and is of Mexican American descent.[1] He has held several coaching positions in baseball, including pitching coach, bullpen coach, and manager.

Playing career

He was selected by the Texas Rangers in the 29th round (592nd overall) of the 1974 amateur entry draft.[2] Bobby Cuellar played in the minor leagues from 1974 to 1981, finishing his career with one season in Mexico. He briefly had a "cup of coffee" with the Texas Rangers in 1977 appearing in four games before returning to the minor leagues at Tucson.[3]

Career in the dugout

Due to also pitching winter ball during his career as a pitcher and the lack of pitch counts in the 1970s, he overused and eventually wore out his shoulder.[4] After his career was over, he went on to a career in coaching and managing. Beginning in 1983, he worked in the Seattle Mariners' organization until 1996. Since then, in addition to stints on the major league coaching staffs of the Montreal Expos, Texas Rangers, and Pittsburgh Pirates, Cuellar has spent six years (as of 2009) coaching in the Minnesota Twins' minor league system. His resume includes:
