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