After finishing last in the league with a 5.37 ERA, the Milwaukee Brewers have hired a new pitching coach. Rick Peterson has signed a two year contract with the Brewers as the new pitching coach. Peterson has spent 11 seasons in Major League baseball with both Oakland and the New York Mets. In addition, Peterson has previously worked with Brewers’ manager Ken Macha and bench coach Willie Randolph.
The Brewers have also asked bullpen coach Stan Kyles to return and are currently working out a deal with interim coach Chris Bosio. Hopefully these changes will help the Brewers return to the playoffs next season. I can’t wait another 26 years.
