Mariners name Hansen hitting coach

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - The Seattle Mariners named Dave Hansen as the team's new hitting coach on Monday.

Hansen takes over for Chris Chambliss, who held the post for the past two seasons.

The 44-year-old Hansen was the hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers from July 20, 2011 through the 2012 season. Prior to joining the Dodgers, Hansen spent four seasons in the Arizona Diamondbacks minor league system.

"I think Dave will be a good addition to our big league staff," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "He's had success as both a coach and a player, and has a clear vision of how to help prepare our hitters to be successful."
