Padres fire hitting coach Matt Stairs after lackluster year

SAN DIEGO (AP) In an almost annual exercise, the San Diego Padres are searching for a new hitting coach after Matt Stairs was fired Tuesday following just one year on the job.

The rebuilding Padres continued to rank at or near the bottom of the majors in key offensive stats under Stairs.

His replacement will be the Padres' 10th hitting coach since Petco Park opened in 2004.
