CHICAGO (CBS) — Cubs hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo will be staying on under new manager Dale Sveum, according to a published report.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Sveum has decided to retain Jaramillo, one of the top-paid Major League Baseball Coaches, who is under contract through 2012.

Two other coaches are also under contract through next year – bench coach Pat Listach and bullpen coach Lester Strode. The Sun-Times reports they are also expected to return.

But two other coaches will not be back, sources tell the newspaper. First-base coach Bob Dernier and third-base coach Ivan DeJesus were told they will be cut, the Sun-Times reports.

Pitching coach Mark Riggins is still talking with Sveum, the Sun-Times reports.

The Cubs hired Jaramillo, 61, in 2009 when Lou Piniella was still serving as manager. Before that, he had spent 15 seasons with the Texas Rangers.

Jaramillo’s three-year contract is worth $2.4 million.
