Oakland hires Davis as hitting coach

The Oakland Athletics have hired Chilli Davis as their hitting coach. He was with Class AAA Pawtucket last season. It was his first season as a full-time coach.

Davis will replace Gerald Perry, who was with Oakland for one season before being fired. Perry was hired off the Pawtucket staff, too.

So clearly whoever becomes the Pawtucket hitting coach in 2012 should keep an eye on rental properties in Oakland for 2013.

Maureen Mullen of Comcast was the first to report the news on Davis.
