Curt Young reportedly turned down a 40 percent raise to return as the A’s pitching coach next year and the initial speculation was that he could end up signing with the Diamondbacks.
However, now that Charles Nagy is said to the front-runner in Arizona the latest speculation has Young potentially in line to replace John Farrell as the pitching coach in Boston.
Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe notes that Red Sox manager Terry Francona “is familiar with Young” from their time together in the A’s organization in 2003.
Joe Stiglich of the Contra Costa Times writes that “everything I’m now hearing points to Young getting consideration” from the Red Sox.
And last but not least Buster Olney of ESPN.com just tweeted that “Boston’s next pitching coach may well be Young.”
