CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs fired hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo on Tuesday after losing 40 of their first 60 games.

James Rowson, the organization's minor league hitting coordinator, was chosen to replace Jaramillo on an interim basis.

Jaramillo was named hitting coach in October 2009. He was in his third season under his third manager. Jaramillo was the hitting coach for the Texas Rangers for 15 seasons before joining the Cubs.

The Cubs were 20-40 entering Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Tigers.
