The Jays have announced coaching changes for 2014. In case you have erased it from your memory, the Jays starters had a terrible year while the hitters were OK when they were not injured.
So, the Jays have changed the hitting side of the coaching staff and retained the pitching coaches.
Chad Mottola has been fired. Dwayne Murphy has retired. Pete Walker and Pat Hentgen will return in their roles. Luis Rivera and DeMarlo Hale will also return.
Surprising no? Several of the writers who follow the Jays have noted this evening that Mottola was praised by the young hitters such as Anthony Gose and some not so young hitters like Colby Rasmus.
