Rudy Jaramillo Hitting Coach

Chicago Cubs Managers and Coaches for 2012

Rudolpho Rudy JaramilloRudolpho "Rudy" Jaramillo

Rudy Jaramillo was the hitting coach of the Texas Rangers for an amazing 15 years (1994-2009), the longest tenure of any hitting coach with one team. Rudy is regarded as the premier hitting coach in the Major Leagues and the Chicago Cubs are lucky to land him. It seems the current ownership dilemma and their inability to offer a larger longer contract let Jaramillo to start looking. What ever you think of Jim Henry he was on top of his game on this one. It will be interesting to see how his presence will affect the teams hitting, especially Alfonso Soriano who was with the Rangers at one time.
