Chicago Cubs hire Anthony Iapoce as hitting coach

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs are turning to a familiar face to help with their inconsistent offense.

Chicago hired Anthony Iapoce as its hitting coach on Monday, replacing the fired Chili Davis. The 45-year-old Iapoce was a special assistant in the Cubs' front office for three years from 2013-15, helping several of their current position players while overseeing the club's minor league hitting program.

Iapoce also has a connection to former Cubs hitting coach John Mallee, who was replaced by Davis after Chicago was eliminated by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS in 2017. Iapoce was the hitting coach for Class A Jupiter from 2008-09 while Mallee was the minor league hitting coordinator for the Marlins.
