The Giants will look to defend their championship in 2015 with Roberto Kelly taking over as the team's third-base coach.
Kelly, 50, will make the jump across the diamond from first base, where he has been coaching for San Francisco since 2007.
Taking his place, the Giants will promote Bill Hayes to first-base coach after previously serving as the bullpen catcher since 2003.
Kelly takes over for Tim Flannery, who announced he is stepping down from the position -- also occupied since 2007 -- in a heartfelt Facebook message to fans.
Kelly, a two-time All-Star as a player, hit .290 with 124 home runs and 585 RBI over a 14-year MLB career.
