Oh no, Hickey won’t return as Rays pitching coach!

This news will not only send shockwaves throughout Major League Baseball, but will also shake the entire international sports community to its core. Expect mainstream news coverage to immediately pivot from Las Vegas and Puerto Rico.

The Tampa Bay Rays will have a new pitching coach next season for the first time in 11 years. Yes, you read that correctly. Jim Hickey will not return as pitching coach.

“BREAKING: Jim Hickey won’t return as #Rays pitching coach. Said to be mutual decision,” Marc Topkin tweets.

It’s not known whether or not Hickey wants to pursue another job in MLB, or if he’s making some serious life changes. There is a chance that he wants to leave the country and pursue his life’s passion of being a farmer in Finland. Maybe he wants to join local law enforcement. We just don’t know right now.
