The Los Angeles Dodgers have moved on from Triple-A hitting coach Shawn Wooten. Wooten is now the second significant member of the organization’s hitting staff to exit this offseason, with assistant hitting coach Tim Hyers being hired away as the hitting coach of the Boston Red Sox under new manager Alex Cora. Wooten spent two seasons as the hitting coach for the Oklahoma City Dodgers, having been hired prior to the start of the 2016 year. Wooten spent six seasons in the major leagues from 2000-05, debuting as a 28-year-old, playing primarily as a member of the Los Angeles Angels. All 18 of his career home runs came in L.A., finishing his career with short stints as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies and Red Sox.
