Braves hire Kevin Seitzer as hitting coach

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays
Greg Walker stepped down at the end of September as the Atlanta Braves hitting coach. Walker’s departure was not a complete surprise after the Braves struggled again offensively for much of the 2014 season.

Kevin Seitzer, a former All-Star, has been hired to replace walker as the Braves hitting coach.

Previously Seitzer has served as the hitting coach for the Diamondbacks, Royals and last season was with the Blue Jays.

Mark Bowman of MLB.com says an official announcement could come later today by the team.
