After previously hiring Derek Johnson away from the Milwaukee Brewers to be their new pitching coach, the Reds announced today that they’ve hired Turner Ward to be their new hitting coach.Ward, 54, had been the hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers since 2016.The Dodgers, as that press release notes, have hit the crud out of the ball the last few seasons, leading the league in dingers and placing second in walks during his tenure. And before you inevitably sigh and say sure they did, they have a quarter-billion dollar payroll, look a bit closer at just who hit so well on his watch.Rookies Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger wasted little time in adapting to big league pitching, hitting immediately upon entering the league. Matt Kemp Dellin Betances Jersey , whose career had truly petered out after leaving LA in 2014, had a renaissance season in 2018 after returning to the Dodgers. Max Muncy went from a DFA’d afterthought in the Oakland system to a 35 home run hitter, and Chris Taylor and his 116 OPS+ over the last two years have a similar story of flourishing under Ward’s watch. Prior to his stint with the Dodgers, Ward spent a good bit of time in the Arizona Diamondbacks system as a hitting coach and minor league manager, in his time there helping tutor the likes of Paul Goldschmidt, AJ Pollock, Jake Lamb, and Justin Upton. Those guys turned out pretty well.Unlike the coup of hiring Johnson to come attempt to fix the brutal pitching staff, Ward obviously walks into a Reds corps of hitters (and ballpark) that should already be pretty conducive for scoring runs-a-plenty. Maybe he can help Joey Votto rediscover his power stroke, or do something similar with the emerging Jesse Winker. Maybe, just maybe he can help unlock the potential in Billy Hamilton. Or, who knows...maybe he’s exactly the kind of advocate the Reds might need to sign, I dunno, free agent AJ Pollock to be their next CF Matt Holliday Jersey , since those two have quite the previous history with one another...Welcome to the Reds, Turner. Here’s to socking dingers. With multiple holes in the rotation, David Hess will have several chances to prove himself next year.

After a strong second half in 2018, Hess will look for consistency in his sophomore season.throughout the years. He made his first appearance at Bowie in 2015 before spending all of 2016 and 2017 with the Baysox. Hess finally put things together at Double-A with an 11-9 record and a 3.85 ERA in 2017. Hess made six starts at Norfolk in 2018 before getting the call to the show. In his final start before the promotion on May 8, he allowed only one hit in seven innings against the Durham Bulls. Outside of a five-run blemish, he only allowed two runs in his five other starts. A month after working six strong innings in his major league debut, Hess began a severe downslide on June 12 against the Red Sox. He allowed five runs in 3.1 innings, and began a five game streak of allowing at least five runs. He was called on to make a relief appearance on July 4, and allowed two runs in two innings. His ERA surpassed six on Independence Day, and it peaked at 6.41 after another loss on August 3.Hess allowed seven runs, five earned Austin Romine Jersey , in 3.1 innings in a loss to Texas on the third. The defeat brought his record to 2-6, and people began to question why Hess was still in Baltimore’s rotation.The Tennessee native bounced back, and began to give the club a reason to keep him in their future plans. The start in Texas was the last time he would allow five earned runs in a game, and he only allowed more than three one time for the remainder of the season. With his strong September, Hess reduced his ERA to 4.88. Is it going to turn any heads? Of course not. But there’s something to be said about a guy taking his lumps and then finishing strong. Hess will be considered for the rotation next year, and it’s difficult to think of a scenario where he doesn’t get the ball every fifth day. It’s not so much a credit to Hess, but a question of who would take his place. The Orioles already have spots to fill in the rotation. After dealing Kevin Gausman and shutting down Andrew Cashner, the Birds had a difficult time finding guys to finish out the season.The Orioles should sign a veteran arm or two to eat innings, but they certainly will not be in the market for a big name or anyone with a significant price tag. It’s not a question of “Why Hess?” as much as it’s “Who else besides Hess?”As an affordable arm that has years of club control, Hess will be in the rotation for as long as he’s serviceable. Hopefully, by the time the Orioles are contenders again, the club will have several young arms trying to force their way into the picture (one can hope, right?). Hess has a few years to prove he belongs in a starting rotation for a contender.
