PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies have hired Bob McClure as pitching coach, the team announced Thursday. The team also announced Rod Nichols has been retained as the bullpen coach and Jesus Tiamo will return as the bullpen catcher.

“Bob brings a wealth of experience to our staff,” Philies manager Ryne Sandberg said in a press release. “We talked to many good candidates and couldn’t be more pleased to add ‘Mac’ as our pitching coach.”

Most recently McClure, 61 years old, served as pitching coach of the Boston Red Sox in 2012. He was pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals from 2006 until 2011. A former left-handed pitcher, McClure spent 19 years (1975-93) in the major leagues.
