    Fresh Off Suspension, Hinch Takes Over As Tigers Manager

    Fresh Off Suspension, Hinch Takes Over As Tigers Manager

    The Detroit Tigers hired AJ Hinch to be their new manager Friday, giving him a chance to return to a major league dugout after he was fired by Houston in the wake of the Astros signstealing scandal.

    DETROIT: The Detroit Tigers hired AJ Hinch to be their new manager Friday, giving him a chance to return to a major league dugout after he was fired by Houston in the wake of the Astros sign-stealing scandal.

    The Tigers announced the move, saying they agreed to terms with Hinch on a multiyear deal.

    Hinch replaces Ron Gardenhire, who retired late this season, and he takes over a rebuilding team that is hoping to start climbing the standings behind a handful of highly touted pitching prospects.

    For the 46-year-old Hinch, this is an opportunity to revive his managerial career. He guided Houston to the 2017 World Series title, but that championship and a lot of what Hinch accomplished there is now viewed in a different light after an investigation found the Astros used a video feed from a center field camera to decode the opposing catchers signs, and players banged on a trash can to signal to hitters what was coming.
