 TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays hired Gary Denbo as their new hitting coach Tuesday.
The 47-year-old Denbo was the New York Yankees' roving hitting coordinator. He was the Yankees' hitting coach in 2001.
Denbo replaces Mickey Brantley, whose contract expired after the season.
Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi said after the season he wanted to hire a hitting coach who would help batters go to the plate with a plan and make better use of video.
The Blue Jays slumped badly in 2007 amid injuries and inconsistencies, finishing near the bottom of most major offensive categories in the American League.
