The Angels have given the Athletics permission to interview assistant hitting coach Dave Hansen for their vacant hitting coach position.

Susan Slusser of the Oakland Chronicle said Hansen is a frontrunner for the position, but it wasn't a given that the Angels would give their division rivals the go-ahead to talk with Hansen. The Athletics are searching for a hitting coach after Chili Davis left for the Red Sox. Hansen was a player under Bob Melvin while both were with the Mariners in the 2004 season.

Susan Slusser of the Oakland Chronicle reports that the Athletics are interested in Dave Hansen for their hitting coach vacancy.

Hansen currently serves as the assistant hitting coach for the division-rival Angels. Chili Davis had spent the previous three seasons in the role for the A's, but agreed to a deal with the Red Sox on Sunday to serve in that same capacity.
