SAN DIEGO (AP) — In an almost annual exercise Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey , the San Diego Padres are searching for a new hitting coach after Matt Stairs was fired Tuesday following just one year on the job.The rebuilding Padres continued to rank at or near the bottom of the majors in key offensive stats under Stairs.His replacement will be the Padres’ 10th hitting coach since Petco Park opened in 2004.While saying that he felt Stairs did a good job with mostly younger players, general manager A.J. Preller said he and manager Andy Green decided that the team needed a different approach. The team is expected to promote someone from within the organization.“We’re wanting a different message, a different voice,” Preller said. “We have some other guys in mind who have real upside. I’m pretty realistic that it was a younger roster, with developing players. From a performance standpoint we didn’t have tons of guys who improved. It’s not like the entire team overachieved. We did have some improvement, but at the end of the day Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite , sitting down with Andy and talking about it, we thought maybe a different voice, a different connection point will hopefully lead to better performance.”Stairs was hired last offseason to replace Alan Zinter, who was fired on Sept. 1, 2017. Green said then that the team needed “a different voice” to tutor the batters.Possible replacements include assistant hitting coach Johnny Washington and Morgan Burkhart, the hitting coach at Triple-A El Paso.The Padres also fired infield coach Josh Johnson on Tuesday.The Padres were last in the majors in on-base percentage at .297 http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey , tied for second-to-last with a .235 batting average and tied for third-to-last with a .380 slugging percentage. They had the second-most strikeouts, 1,523, or 9.4 per game.Stairs spent the 2017 season as the hitting coach for the Philadelphia Phillies, his first professional coaching position. He played parts of 19 seasons in the major leagues with 12 different franchises, including the Padres in 2010.The Padres expected to be better this year than their 71-91 finish in 2017 but were last in the NL West at 66-96. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins placed right-hander Ervin Santana on the 10-day disabled list Sunday and reinstated outfielder Robbie Grossman from the DL.The Twins also recalled right-hander Alan Busenitz from Triple-A Rochester before their 5-4 victory over Detroit. Outfielder Johnny Field was sent down.The 35-year-old Santana http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-mccaffrey-jersey , who won 16 games last year, is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Tuesday about recurring finger discomfort that has sidelined him for much of the season.“I’m not sure where it’s going to go from here, we just thought it made sense at this time rather than run him back out there on Tuesday,” manager Paul Molitor said.Santana opened the season on the DL after undergoing surgery on his right middle finger in February. He was reinstated on July 25 and went 0-1 with an 8.03 ERA in 24 2/3 innings over five starts.“It’s very tough for me and obviously for the team because instead of help the team you hurt the team because you don’t locate your fastball where you want it, or your slider where you want it, and then it’s difficult http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/baker-mayfield-jersey ,” Santana said. “Now I’m just trying to get ready and move on.”Santana said he hasn’t spoken recently to his surgeons, but added, “The last time I saw him in New York, he told me the pain will go away. Still here.”Grossman was sidelined by a strained hamstring. He is batting .253 with four homers and 34 RBIs in 92 games.Top prospect Stephen Gonsalves also was in Minnesota’s clubhouse on Sunday. He is slated to start Monday against the Chicago White Sox. Right-hander Tyler Duffey was optioned to Rochester after Sunday’s win to make room for Gonsalves.
