Boston Red Sox: Valentin to be named assistant hitting coach with Dodgers INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Former Sox infielder John Valentin will be the assistant hitting coach to Mark McGwire with the Dodgers, both Dodgers GM Ned Colletti and Valentin have confirmed.
Valentin was the Triple A hitting coach last season and was highly thought of in the Dodgers organization. It was thought he might be a good fit the Red Sox.
The Red Sox, who hired Juan Nieves as their pitching coach, are also starting to look into hitting coach candidates. One name who might be on their radar is Dwayne Murphy, who was a hitting coach on John Farrell's staff in Toronto. Murphy is also a six-time Gold Glover who also worked with Jays outfielders.
