Padres' General Manager A.J. Preller has started interviewing hitting coach candidates for the upcoming season. He intends to hire two.
The Padres were the worst offensive team in baseball by most measures. The Padres' first order of business was firing incumbent hitting coach Phil Planter last week, and now they'll begin their search for a two-headed hitting coach beast to revamp their offense. No candidates, much less favorites, have emerged, but it's a story to watch as we head into the offseason. Preller has some talent to work with, and it'll be interesting to see the direction the team takes under new management.
