Hurdle among 4 finalists for Texas hitting coach

Former Colorado Rockies coach Clint Hurdle is among four finalists to replace Rudy Jaramillo as the Texas Rangers hitting coach.

The other finalists are former Texas Rangers player Rusty Greer, who was a fan favorite who hit .305 in his nine seasons with the Rangers (1994-2002). Thad Bosley and Gerald Perry are also in the running. All the finalists will be interviewed Monday.

Bosley is a former hitting instructor for Oakland. Perry has been a hitting coach for Seattle, Pittsburgh, Oakland and the

After 15 seasons in Texas, Jaramillo turned down a one-year offer from the Rangers and signed a three-year deal to be the Cubs
hitting coach.
