The Diamondbacks fired Charles Nagy after he spent three years as their pitching coach. But he’s landed on his feet. Paul Hoynes reports that the Indians have hired him as a pitching instructor of some sort (Mickey Callaway is the actual pitching coach).
Nagy spent thirteen of his fourteen big league seasons in an Indians uniform. And it seems like he’s happy to be back. Of particular interest: his comments about former Dbacks and current Indians prospect Trevor Bauer. Bauer left Arizona amid questions about his work ethic and attitude. Nagy seems like quite a fan, however. It’ll be interesting to see if Bauer becomes Nagy’s pet project.
