The team announced the hiring on Wednesday. Shelton replaces Clint Hurdle, who was fired on the final day of the season following a second-half collapse that dropped the Pirates to a last-place finish in the NL Central.

The 49-year-old Shelton spent the last two seasons as the bench coach for the Minnesota Twins. Shelton's previous stops include a season as the quality control coach for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2017 and seven years as a hitting coach with the Tampa Bay Rays. Shelton broke into the majors as hitting coach for the Cleveland Indians from 2005-09.

Shelton's managerial experience is limited to minor league stints in the Yankees' organization in the early 2000s.

The move completes a leadership overhaul for the Pirates. The team hired Travis Williams as president in October and Ben Cherington as general manager this month.
