That Was Fast: Royals Hire Dale Sveum

MLB News and Rumors

Dale Sveum GollyWhen he was dismissed as the manager of the Chicago Cubs earlier this week, no one doubted that Dale Sveum would find another job in baseball. Indeed, most figured he’d probably land something quickly.

But three days? Damn. Dude is fast.

Today, the Kansas City Royals announced (via the Twitters) that the organization had hired Sveum to a coaching position for 2014. The details of his role aren’t yet clear, but Sveum has always been thought of as a gifted coach, particularly on the hitting side. Based on the speed of his hire, I think it’s pretty clear that he was in high demand for a job like this.

Best of luck to him with the Royals next year.
