News from the world – CA – AJ Hinch on the verge of becoming manager of the Tigers


Former Astros manager, who was suspended by MLB this season and fired by the team for involvement in Houston sign-stealing scandal, finalizes deal to become manager of the Detroit Tigers, ESPN says

With Hinch’s suspension ending after the World Series, he is free to sign with any team and it looks like the 46-year-old will replace Ron Gardenhire, who retired after last season’s GM of Tigers Al Avila didn’t seem embarrassed that his next manager was involved in the theft of signs during his last stop

Early in the process, Avila didn’t rule out Hinch or former Red Sox coach and Astros coach Alex Cora early in the process. Cora was also involved in the scandal, suspended by MLB and fired from her managerial position by the Red Sox. Her suspension also ended this week

“Really, I can’t say that I eliminated anyone,” Avila said earlier this month “The cheating scandal is not a good thing, obviously They are serving their suspensions , and once their suspensions are over, they will be free to pursue their careers. So we haven’t removed anyone from our list at this point « 

Hinch, who won the scandalous 2017 World Series with the Astros, is 570-452 as a coach – winning over 100 games in each of his last three seasons in Houston He appears to be taking over a Tigers team that finished 23-35 in the shortened 2020 season and finished last in AL Central three over the past four years

News of Hich’s potential hiring comes the same day division rival White Sox named Tony La Russa, 76, their manager Hinch is rumored to be a candidate for Chicago but has never been interviewed
