Sox Name Tim Hyers & Andy Barkett As Hitting Coaches

The Red Sox named Tim Hyers as their new Hitting Coach and Andy Barkett as their new Assistant Hitting Coach. Hyers has been Assistant Hitting Coach for the National League Champion Los Angeles Dodgers for the last two seasons. Barkett has been coaching and managing in the systems of the Tigers, Marlins and Pirates over the last eleven seasons. Both have reputations of enhancing the offensive output of players—something the Red Sox desperately need going forward.
