Pitching coach Mike Maddux and the Rangers “have had positive talks”

4 Comments

Longtime pitching coach Mike Maddux was not chosen as the Rangers’ new manager, but he hopes to stay on Jeff Banister’s staff. One potential problem: Maddux’s contract is up Friday.

At that point he’d be free to talk to other teams, but Maddux told Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas: “Jeff and I have had positive talks.”

He didn’t expand beyond that, so who knows how likely returning is at this point, but both sides have indicated they’d like to work something out.
