According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons’ option for 2015 became guaranteed Wednesday and an option for 2016 was added.

There is a clause in Gibbons' contract with the Jays that ensures he will never become a lame duck manager. As long as he's employed as of January 1 in a given year, his option for the following year becomes guaranteed. Gibbons had a 74-88 managerial record in 2013.

Former Royals hitting coach Kevin Seitzer will be named the Blue Jays' new hitting coach, according to Bob Dutton of the KC Star.

It's a move that's been in the works for a few weeks, but Dutton says it will now be official. Seitzer and Jays manager John Gibbons are familiar with each other from their time on the Royals staff from 2009 to 2011. The Jays have been looking for a new hitting coach since firing Chad Mottola earlier this offseason.

The Blue Jays are on the verge of hiring Kevin Seitzer as their hitting coach, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.

No deal is finalized, but the two sides seem to be nearing an agreement, Chisholm writes. Seitzer worked with Jays manager John Gibbons from 2009 to 2011 as part of the Royals' staff. The Jays fired their previous hitting coach, Chad Mottola, on October 7.

The Blue Jays have fired hitting coach Chad Mottola.

The Jays finished ninth in baseball in Mottola's lone season as the hitting coach, but evidently that wasn't good enough for him to keep his job. Toronto also announced that first base coach Dwayne Murphy has retired.
