Keith Komeiji has been fired as the hitting coach of the University of Hawaii baseball team, according to multiple sources.

Komeiji was with UH for Mike Trapasso’s first nine seasons as head coach, spending four as the first-base coach before working the last five as the third-base coach.

The former Kaiser High standout and minor leaguer was given the job of hitting coach in 2006 after working primarily with the catchers.

He’s the fourth hitting coach under Trapasso at UH.

Also, former Rainbows left-hander Sam Spangler has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Twins, and former catcher David Freitas has signed with the Washington Nationals.

Freitas was picked in the 15th round (446th overall), while Spangler went in the 41st round (1,245th).

Former Campbell High pitcher Charles Kaalekahi said on Tuesday he and catcher Keanu Carmichael have agreed to deals with the Seattle Mariners. Both were UH recruits.

Carmichael was taken in the sixth round (192nd) and Kaalekahi went in the 15th (462nd).
