Arizona has successfully lured longtime Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan out of retirement, but it won’t be to take over as the Diamondbacks’ pitching coach.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Duncan will instead join the Diamondbacks organization as a special assistant because “he wasn’t ready to return to coaching full time.”

General manager Kevin Towers explained that he’s happy to have the 68-year-old Duncan on board in any capacity, saying: “It’s pretty much, ‘Hey, you set your schedule and we’d love to have you.'”

And now Duncan will help the Diamondbacks find their new pitching coach.

    Is this like the Phillies and their stat guy?

    That’s one less name on the consideration list for the Phillies pitching coach position…
