CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have fired hitting coach Gerald Perry after 2½ seasons in an attempt to spark a sputtering offense that ranks among the National League's worst.
He was replaced by Von Joshua from Triple-A Iowa.
General manager Jim Hendry made the announcement before Sunday's
game against Minnesota.
The Cubs had high expectations after winning back-to-back NL Central titles, but with a 29-30 record and a .246 team batting average, Hendry decided to make a change.
