Jays fire hitting coach Jacoby, first base coach Leiper

The Toronto Blue Jays have made more changes to their coaching staff a week after hiring a new manager.

A team spokesperson confirmed Saturday that Toronto had fired hitting coach Brook Jacoby and first base coach Tim Leiper.

The moves come one week after Toronto hired Charlie Montoyo as the 13th manager in franchise history.

Montoyo was introduced as the team’s manager earlier in the week. The former Tampa Bay Rays bench coach said in his introductory press conference that putting a coaching staff in place would be his first order of business.

Jacoby, 58, spent the last four seasons as the Blue Jays hitting coach while Leiper, 52, was hired as the team’s first base coach in 2014.
