Management Shake-up: Jim Presley, Tack Wilson
After getting swept by the Guardians over the weekend, it seems the Chinatrust Brothers front office have had enough with their struggling lineup and decided to do something about it.
Earlier today, the Chinatrust Brothers have confirmed that they have parted ways with hitting coach Jim Presley. The organisation will promote farm team hitting coach Tack Wilson to take over the position.
Since the start of the second-half season, the Brothers are last in all the batting categories as a team. (AVG, OBP, SLG, Hits, HR, RBI, Runs, BB).
Management Shake-up: Cory Snyder, Scott Budner
Due to the wildfires in Utah, the Brothers’ manager Cory Snyder will be on temporary leave to support his family back home in the United States. During his time of absent, pitching coach Scott Budner will take over as an interim manager.
“I’m sorry for the timing that I need to go home to help my family, as they are being evacuated and I need to be there to support them as a father and husband,” said the Brothers’ manager Cory Snyder. “I hope I can get things resolved back home as soon as possible so I can return to Taiwan to help the Brothers the rest of the season.”
According to Snyder’s interview with Liberty Sports, the next two weeks are critical back home. He will need one and a half to two weeks before deciding on when to return to Taiwan.
