THE YANKEES START HIRING...
Word is the Yankees have just hird Greg Colbrunn. No, not as the hitting coach for the big club, but for the Charleston RiverDogs.
According to Mark Feinsand, "The Yankees have hired Greg Colbrunn to be the hitting coach at Class A Charleston, according to a source, bringing the well-respected 45-year-old back into the organization.
Colbrunn coached six years at Charleston before joining the Red Sox as their major-league hitting coach in 2013. He suffered a brain hemorrhage last June, missing about six weeks as he recovered. Colbrunn opted not to return to the Red Sox next season, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family in the wake of his health scare.
Boston hired Chili Davis this week to replace Colbrunn as the hitting coach."
So there you have it. Colbrunn's been inked. And now we wait for the Yankees signing of the big clubs hitting coach. Mad speculation is that it will be Derek Shelton, now that Joe Maddon has left Tampa Bay, read HERE. We will have to see.
Welcome home Greg, welcome home.
