KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals announced Thursday that George Brett and Pedro Grifol will assume the interim hitting coach and major league special assignment coach roles, respectively, effective Thursday night when the Royals play in St. Louis at 7:15 p.m. In a corresponding move, the Royals have reassigned coaches Jack Maloof and Andre David to the minor league organization.

“Obviously things have not gone as we would have expected and in light of the downturn in offensive production and poor results we’ve decided to make a change,” said Dayton Moore, Royals’ Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations and General Manager.

This move comes in the wake of the Royals losing 8 games in a row, and 19 games in their last 23.
