Freshly-hired Cubs manager Dale Sveum is beginning to put together his coaching staff.
According to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, Sveum has asked former big league teammate and current Triple-A manager Chris Bosio to become the Cubs’ new pitching coach. A formal interview is likely to take place after Thanksgiving weekend.
Bosio served as an advance scout for the Brewers this past season before accepting a managing gig with the Rays’ Triple-A affiliate in September. He was an interim pitching coach for Milwaukee in 2009.
Sveum has already asked hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo to return to the Cubs next season and might try to hire Craig Counsell in some capacity if the veteran infielder decides to end his playing career.
