Detroit Tigers hire A.J. Hinch as new manager

A.J. Hinch, days removed from completing his one-year MLB suspension for his role in the Houston Astros’ 2017 sign-stealing plot, is returning to baseball to manage the Detroit Tigers, a person with knowledge of the deal told the Free Press on Friday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has yet to be announced.

Hinch, 46, interviewed with general manager Al Avila on Thursday and spent the entire day in Detroit with him and other members of the front office. His wife, Erin, was expected to take a plane Friday to join him.

The financial terms of Hinch’s agreement weren’t immediately available.

Official now:
