The Detroit Tigers announced today that pitching coach Chris Bosio has been fired. The official statement from the club didn’t offer much explanation beyond the fact that Bosio had said something insensitive:

MLive later confirmed that Bosio’s comments had been directed at a team employee, and that they had been brought to the team’s attention yesterday. General manager Al Avila refused to provide any details about what was actually said, but WXYZ is reporting that Bosio was fired for saying something racist.
