Report: Former Rockies Hitting Coach Don Baylor To Join Arizona Diamondbacks

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that former hitting coach Don Baylor will join the Arizona Diamondbacks in the same capacity:

I am hearing that Dbacks will hire Don Baylor as their hitting instructor. I will keep you posted after I confirm the newsless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Baylor had been the Rockies’ hitting instructor for the last two years, first under Clint Hurdle and then Jim Tracy. Baylor, who had hoped for a managerial job, lost the Toronto Blue Jays’ opening to John Farrell. In Arizona, Baylor joins Eric Young Sr., who was recently named the first base coach.
