The Red Sox have not picked a pitching coach yet, but Gordon Edes reports that there is a favorite:

The Red Sox are expected to make a decision on their new pitching coach by Tuesday, and new manager John Farrell is “all in” on longtime pitching coach Rick Peterson as his choice, according to a baseball source.

Peterson works for the Orioles now. If he’s hired, the rumor on the street is that the Sox will sign Victor Zambrano to be their new number one starter.
