Cubs fire hitting coach
(MCT) — The Cubs fired hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo Tuesday and replaced him with minor league hitting coordinator James Rowson on an interim basis.
Jaramillo was in the final year of a three-year deal signed before the 2010 season. Rowson spent six years in the Yankees organization, including the last four as minor league hitting coordinator, before joining the Cubs organization this year.
"Rudy is not to blame for the results," Cubs baseball President Theo Epstein said. "That's something we're all accountable for. We put the roster together. It's probably more on us than him. A lot of players feel accountable, too. It's not based on results. We're trying to get a new voice with a new message."
