A.J. Hinch comments on Chris Fetter potentially leaving for Michigan

Chris Fetter, of course, was the pitching coach at Michigan prior to joining the Tigers staff and there has been speculation that he could head back to Ann Arbor to replace Bakich.

Well, that is not going to happen if Tigers manager A.J. Hinch has anything to say about it.

On Wednesday, Hinch spoke to reporters and he said that as far as he knows, Michigan has not yet reached out to Fetter about their opening for head coach.

“I’m not surprised that the rumors have started. From what I understand, there’s been no contact yet. We love Fett. He’s very talented. … We have to do everything we can to keep him. “He’s a big part of what we’re doing. We want him to stay here.”

Fetter has done an outstanding job so far with the Tigers pitching staff and if he were to head back to Ann Arbor, it would be a big loss.
