Three weeks after parting ways with Andy Barkett, the Boston Red Sox reportedly have their new assistant hitting coach.

The team has hired Peter Fatse as Barkett's replacement according to Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage. Fatse, who hails from Wilbraham, Mass., served as the minor league hitting coordinator for the Minnesota Twins in 2019.

Fatse will assist Sox hitting coach Tim Hyers.

His hiring kicks off what's set to be an active offseason for the Red Sox following an underwhelming campaign in which they finished 84-78 and failed to clinch a playoff berth. Boston's remaining openings include pitching coach, assistant pitching coach, and general manager.
