    The Texas Rangers will turn to Clint Hurdle to get their offense going in 2010.

    The Texas Rangers have apparently come to a decision on their new hitting coach.

    Reporter T.R. Sullivan with MLB.COM reports former Rockies manager Clint Hurdle will be named the Rangers hitting coach in the next few days.

    Hurdle beat out several candidates, including fan fave Rusty Greer for the position. He would replace Rudy Jaramillo who turned down a one-year contract offer. Jaramillo joined the Chicago Cubs shortly after leaving the Rangers.

    Hurdle served as the Rockies' manager from 2002 until May of last season when he was fired. Hurdle led Colorado to a World Series in 2007, but were swept by the Boston Red Sox.

    Hurdle currently serves as a television analyst for the MLB network.
