MLB: Four coaches leave the Detroit Tigers, while a Mexican will return in 2023

The Detroit Tigers manager AJ Hinchannounced a series of changes to his coaching staff this Friday afternoon. In particular, the hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh and quality control coach Josh Paul will no longer return to the organization in 2023.

Meanwhile, assistant hitting coach Mike Hessman and third base coach Ramon Santiago will not be on the major league coaching staff but have been offered new roles in player development. Gary Jones, who served as first base coach until he was hit by a line drive that broke his ankle in late May, will return to the major league staff in a role to be determined:

Former Mexican Major League Baseball player Alfredo Amézagawho joined the major league staff at the end of the season after serving as the Tigers’ Triple-A first base coach, will be the first base coach on the major league staff next year.

The upcoming addition of a new hitting coach and assistant hitting coach is not a surprise after a disastrous 2022 season in Detroit. Tigers hitters ranked in the bottom six of all MLB teams in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage, posting a combined .231/.286/.346 line in 2022.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, the LMB All Star, the LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signing important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
