Rockies hire Steve Foster as pitching coach

1 Comment

Being the pitching coach for the Rockies is basically impossible job, but the latest to take on the challenge is Steve Foster.

Colorado hired Foster away from Kansas City, where he’s been a special assistant and pitching coordinator for the past three seasons and previously served as bullpen coach.

He replaces Jim Wright, who was fired last month after the Rockies’ pitching staff allowed the most runs in baseball.

Prior to going to into coaching Foster was a reliever for the Reds from 1991-1993, throwing 90 innings with a 2.41 ERA.
