Bagwell To Step Down As Astros Hitting Coach

After less than half a season on the job, Houston Astros legend turned hitting coach Jeff Bagwell has elected to move on. MLB.com's Astros beat writer Brian McTaggart has the scoop:

The news comes as obviously somewhat of a surprise though the efficacy of Bagwell's work with the team can probably be debated without much conclusiveness gained. If Bagwell's heart wasn't in the job, in the long run it could be more beneficial for the Astros to move in another direction. Look for the search for Bagwell's successor to begin immediately.
