PHOENIX, AZ - The Arizona Diamondbacks today announced the hiring of Ken Crenshaw as Head Athletic Trainer. Crenshaw will be replacing Paul Lessard, who has taken the same position with the Boston Red Sox.

Crenshaw comes to Arizona after 10 seasons with Tampa Bay, having served the Devil Rays for three years as Head Athletic Trainer, for five years as assistant trainer and two seasons working with the organization's minor league players on strength training, conditioning, nutrition and rehabilitation. Led by Crenshaw, the Devil Rays medical staff was named by Baseball Prospectus as medical staff of the year in 2004, having led the Major Leagues with only 315 days lost to the disabled list by its players.

A native of New Mexico, Crenshaw graduated from New Mexico State University with a degree in sports medicine and worked as a trainer in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization for three years and as the strength and conditioning coordinator with the Atlanta Braves for four years before heading to Tama Bay. He is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Ken and his wife, Robyn, have three sons, Wacy James, Wyatt Cal and Dustin Caleb.
