Braves hire hitting coach Seitzer from Toronto

(AP) -- New hitting coach Kevin Seitzer said he'll bring an up-the-middle philosophy to an Atlanta Braves team which flopped at the plate this season.

The Braves hired Seitzer from the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday to replace Greg Walker. Atlanta also named Jose Castro as assistant hitting coach.

Seitzer said one of his most important lessons will be convincing hitters they make themselves vulnerable by attempting to pull balls with a "turn-and-burn" approach.
