Ocasio began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant coach at Oklahoma State University in 1996. He moved to New Mexico State University in 1997 to serve as an assistant coach for the Aggies. Ocasio joined the Colorado Rockies player development system in 1998 as a hitting coach with the AZL Rockies. After two years there, he spent one season with the Salem Avalanche. He became hitting coach of the Tri-City Dust Devils from 2001 to 2005 and was promoted to manager of the club in 2006. In his first year at the helm, he led the team to a .500 mark. Ocasio continued to manage in the Rockies organization through the 2018 season.
In 2019 Ocasio switched roles and became a development supervisor for the Boise Hawks. He was slated to return in 2000 before COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the minor league season. Ocasio continued in this role with the Spokane Indians in 2021. After the 2021 season, Ocasio took a third base coaching position with the Tigres del Licey in the Dominican League. Many U.S. coaches do this, but it unusual for a coach to take this step for the first time after more than 20 years of coaching.
Ocasio returned to managing in 2022 with the ACL Rockies.
