Matt Stairs joins Padres staff as hitting coach



stairs-762813.jpgAccording to a report, Matt Stairs will be the hitting coach of the San Diego Padres in 2018.

Stairs, who guided the Phils to a .256/.323/.422 slash in 2017, putting up the 12th most runs of 16 National League teams, was released from his role with the firing of Pete Mackanin as manager; the Phillies didn’t elect to retain him for the future.

The Phils, meanwhile, are whittling down choices for manager and are expected to make an announcement on their decision any day now.
