    Detroit Tigers: A.J. Hinch announces coaching additions

    2022 did not go at all as planned for the A.J. Hinch and the Detroit Tigers, as they went from a team many believed could challenge for a Wild Card spot in the MLB Playoffs, to a team that led the league in NOT SCORING runs. Toward the end of the season, Tigers owner Chris Ilitch made the decision to move on from Al Avila, and later announced the hiring of Scott Harris as the new team president, signaling the start of a new era of Tigers baseball. Since then, a plethora of changes have been made, both to the 40-man roster and to the coaching staff. On Monday night, Hinch announced some changes to the coaching staff.

    “If you’re a young player coming up to Detroit, or if you’re a veteran who has been in five different places, you can come to Detroit and work with, you know, Robin, Fett and Juan or work with Brdar, Keith and J-Row, and they’re going to have excellent content for you and they’re going to be in the trenches with you every day for 162 to help you get better.”
