The SportsXchange

The Toronto Blue Jays announced Monday the hiring of bench coach DeMarlo Hale and Chad Mottola as their new hitting coach.

Hale left his job as the Baltimore Orioles third base coach to join Toronto.

Mottola, the fifth pick in the 1992 draft, played 16 seasons in the minors before working his way up the Blue Jays' minor league coaching chain. He was the hitting coach for the Class AAA affiliate in Las Vegas last season.

The rest of new manager John Gibbons' staff includes pitching coach Pete Walker, first base coach Dwayne Murphy and third base coach Luis Rivera.
