Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that the Braves will hire Larry Parrish as their new hitting coach, with an announcement expected later today.

Parrish, who hit 256 homers in 15 seasons as a big-league third baseman and made a pair of All-Star teams, had been the Triple-A manager in Detroit’s organization and also managed the Tigers for 186 games in 1998 and 1999.

Atlanta also interviewed Jim Presley for the hitting coach job, but he’s reportedly on the verge of joining Buck Showalter’s coaching staff in Baltimore. Terry Pendleton served as the Braves’ hitting coach this season, but was switched to first base coach with Fredi Gonzalez taking over for Bobby Cox as manager.
