Luis Gonzalez, Matt Williams, Mark Grace, Randy Johnson and J.J. Putz are among the former Arizona Diamondbacks players who have since obtained a coaching or managerial role with the team.

On Tuesday, the D-backs announced Orlando Hudson has been added to that list.

Hudson, who played second base for the D-backs from 2006-08, will be an assistant coach with the D-backs for the remainder of the season, the team announced.

The 38-year-old Hudson played in 11 MLB seasons from 2002-12. He made the National League All-Star team as a member of the D-backs in 2007. He also won four Gold Glove awards during his career, including two with the D-backs, in 2006 and '07.

Phil Nevin, who manages the D-backs' Triple-A affiliate in Reno, Nevada, will also join the Arizona coaching staff for the remainder of the season.
