The Red Sox were previously reported to be interviewing Rick Peterson for their pitching coach gig. While he still remains a candidate, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports that the list is expanding:
Red Sox interviewed Juan Nieves for pitching coach position today. Tomorrow: Randy St. Claire. Also, attempting 2 re-schedule Rick Peterson

St. Claire is the current pitching coach for the Marlins, but given Ozzie Guillen’s firing, his job may not be the most secure thing on the planet. He’s also the uncle of professional wrestler Ryback, which is something I did not know until I looked at his Wikipedia page a minute ago.
Juan Nieves, the former Brewers pitcher who once tossed a no-hitter, is the bullpen coach for the White Sox.
