In joining the increasing number of teams to employ a pair of hitting coaches the Dodgers have hired John Valentin as their assistant hitting coach.
He’ll work alongside new hitting coach Mark McGwire, who left the Cardinals for the Dodgers last week.
Valentin retired as a player in 2002 following an 11-year career spent mostly with the Red Sox and has been coaching and managing the Dodgers’ farm system for the past six seasons.
