Yankees to interview A’s hitting coach Chili Davis


A’s hitting coach Chili Davis will interview for the same job with the Yankees, according to Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea.com.

Last week New York fired hitting coach Kevin Long, who held the job from 2007 to 2014 and guided the team to the second-most runs in MLB during that time.

Davis, who spent the final two seasons of his playing career with the Yankees in 1998 and 1999, has been the A’s hitting coach since 2012. During that time Oakland ranked eighth, third, and third among AL teams in scoring.

Davis has also been linked other hitting coach openings, including the Red Sox and Cubs.
