Toronto Blue Jays Hire Kevin Seitzer As Hitting Coach


 

 

Seitzer, who is taking over from Chad Mottola, brings what Davidi calls  “a tough-minded approach to the Blue Jays”. The team believes that this tough-minded approach will have the ability to make guys better. While with the Royals, Seitzer was known for warning his hitters to not get “too pull happy”, preferring that they use a defensive/opposite-field approach when falling behind in the count. How this strategy will work with a power filled, pull-happy meat of the Blue Jays order remains to be seen, but if Seitzer has made it this far in baseball he probably knows not to fix something if it isn’t broken.
