Brett, a Major League Hall-Of-Famer and franchise leader in hits, was named to the hitting coach position replacing Jack Maloof. This will be Brett’s first in-season coaching job.
Grifol was named in place of Andre David after being promoted from his hitting coach position with the Royals’ Surprise affiliate.
Both David and Maloof will be reassigned in the organization. KC plays St. Louis in their series finale tonight, with pregame coverage on KTGR at 6:20 PM.
