The Milwaukee Brewers continue to make early offseason changes hiring Andy Haines as their new hitting coach replacing Darnell Coles.
Haines comes over from the Chicago Cubs where he was the team's assistant hitting coach.
The Cubs reportedly allowed Haines to pursue different options following the end of last season.
Haines is no stranger to the current Brewers roster according to Adam McCalvy
As @acjp2024 pointed out, new Brewers hitting coach (per @JonHeyman) Andy Haines has a long history with Christian Yelich. Haines managed Yelich at Class A Greensboro and advanced Class A Jupiter early in Yelich's pro career.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) November 3, 2018
This move coming on the heels of pitching coach Derek Johnson decided to sign a contract with the Cincinnati Reds.
