Blue Jays hire Pat Hentgen
Hentgen previously served as Toronto's bullpen coach in 2011. He spent eight of the last nine seasons as a team ambassador and special assistant to the organization.
Hentgen played 10 of his 14 big-league seasons in Toronto. In 1996, he went 20-10 with a 3.22 ERA to become the first Blue Jay to win the Cy Young Award.
The 44-year-old Detroit native made 183 consecutive starts for Toronto between 1993 and 1998.
The staff for new manager John Gibbons is now complete.
