Hitting coach Thad Bosley is out

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Rangers have relieved hitting coach Thad Bosley of his duties on Wednesday, according to a source. The club is expected to announce the decision soon. Scott Coolbaugh will handle the hitting coach duties for now.

Bosley was hired before the 2011 season after Clint Hurdle left to become manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bosley, who was a finalist for the job when Hurdle was hired prior to the 2010 season to replace Rudy Jaramillo, leaves after just a little more than two months into the regular season.

More to come later.
