DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers have hired Rich Dubee to be the team's new pitching coach.
Dubee takes over after Jeff Jones' retirement. Dubee was the minor league pitching coordinator for the Atlanta Braves for the past two seasons. Before that, he was the pitching coach for the Philadelphia Phillies for nine seasons.
The Tigers are trying to bounce back from a last-place finish this year, when their once-vaunted starting rotation slipped significantly.
