The Orix Buffaloes are working on a contract extension with Tuffy Rhodes and from the sounds of things, it looks like the team is might try to groom Tuffy for a spot on the coaching staff.

Said club president Murayama, "He's one of the players on our roster that we'd like to make a coach at some point.  I'd like to discuss that with him."

The club may also try to use the "coach" concept as leverage for bringing Rhodes back at a lower cost.
