LSU is set to introduce its new assistant baseball coach at a news conference Monday, and it’s expected to be former Tulane star and New York Yankees scout Andy Cannizaro.
The Tigers will also introduce the 2014 signing class and reveal the 2015 schedule.
The Advocate reported on LSU’s 2015 schedule in March.
Cannizaro, multiple sources said, will replace hitting coach and recruiting coordinator Javi Sanchez. Sanchez left the program over the summer and plans to leave coaching.
Cannizaro, a 35-year-old from Mandeville, was a major league shortstop and last played in the majors in 2008 with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Coach Paul Mainieri could not confirm Cannizaro’s hiring, but multiple sources affirmed that he’ll be introduced Monday as Sanchez’s replacement.
