The Chicago Cubs have announced that Rob Deer has been hired as assistant hitting coach.
I remember looking at this card as a kid and seeing batting averages of .232, .238, and. 252 combined with strikeout totals of 179, 186, and 153.
Yeah, he hit some home runs (33, 28, 23) in those years, but I didn’t understand the value he provided.
Not surprising that Cubs hire Rob Deer as assistant hitting coach. Deer very close to manager Dale Sveum from days playing for #Brewers.
