Chili Davis joins Boston Red Sox as hitting coach, leaves Oakland Athletics

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Chili Davis has agreed to terms with the Boston Red Sox to become their next hitting coach, according to a tweet by Rob Bradford of, the website for the Red Sox's flagship radio station. Before joining the Athletics as hitting coach in 2012 under Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin, Davis was the hitting coach for the Red Sox's Triple-A team in Pawtucket.

Davis' departure, once confirmed, creates vacancies in Oakland for bench coach and hitting coach.
