Rays get new hitting coach

The Rays named Derek Shelton their new hitting coach today. He replaces Steve Henderson who was let go after the season. Shelton comes over from the Cleveland Indian organization (a team that has had some success against the Rays lately).  The 39-year-old has been their hitting coach since 2005.

Shelton does have some playing experience. He played 2 years in the Yankee organization as a catcher before an injury derailed his career.

I say it's good to see a little shake-up in the organization. I hope Shelton can keep the bats going and figure out a way to turn Pat back into the Bat.
