The Seattle Mariners announced Dave Hansen as their new hitting coach on Monday, the Seattle Times reported.
Hansen, who was fired as the Los Angeles Dodgers hitting coach, is a former Mariners infielder. He was the only coach on the Dodgers' Don Mattingly-led staff who was not kept.
Hansen, 43, replaces Chris Chambliss, who was let go at the end of the season.
The Mariners, who struggled offensively this year, finished 75-87.
