Infielder Anthony Contreras played in the San Francisco Giants' chain in 2005-2007 and the San Diego Padres' chain in 2008-2013. In his nine seasons Contreras appeared in 729 games and hit .257/.292/.342. He also pitched in 11 games with a fine 7.29 ERA. Contreras played briefly in the independent leagues in both 2008 and 2013, most likely after being released by the Giants and Padres, respectively.
Contreras became a manager with the AZL Padres in 2014 when Rod Barajas was moved up to hitting coach in A ball. He then began the next year as skipper of the Tri-City Dust Devils. He was slated to manage Fort Wayne again in 2020 before the minor league season was cancelled due to COVID-19.
After the 2021 season he also managed the Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League.
