The BBWAA won’t officially release the winner of the Cy Young Award until 2PM, but Venezuelan journalist Alexander Mendoza tweeted a few minutes ago that Felix Hernandez has won it, and that he’s celebrating his win with his family already.

The Angels announced on Monday that Eric Hinske has joined the team to serve as the new hitting coach. Hinske had been the hitting coach for the Cubs since 2014.

Hinske, 40, spent parts of 12 years in the majors, though he never played for the Angels (or the Cubs). He put up a .762 OPS over his career.

Dave Hansen had been the Angels hitting coach since the end of the 2015 season but the Angels decided to part ways with him heading into 2018.
