Spent two seasons with the Pawtucket Red Sox before he was released. Played independent ball in 2001 and then spent 2002 with the Dodgers new AAA team, the Las Vegas 51s before retiring from baseball.

After his retirement, he became a hitting coach in the Dodgers farm system. First with the GCL Dodgers in 2002 and then with the South Georgia Waves and Columbus Catfish from 2003 to 2006.
