Struggling Mets Fire Hitting Coaches 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue May 4, 2021 1:25 pm

The New York Mets fired hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Tom Slater after Monday\'s 6-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Mets are 11-12 and have struggled to score.

\"It was a difficult decision to make,\" general manager Zack Scott said. \"It\'s not about 23 games of results.

\"We just felt like the players needed a different level of support and maybe some different skills brought into the mix.\"

Minor league director of hitting development Hugh Quattlebaum becomes the new hitting coach, and director of player development Kevin Howard takes over as assistant hitting coach under Luis Rojas.
