Curt Young Expected To Be Named New Red Sox Pitching Coach

The Red Sox are set to name Curt Young their new pitching coach, according to WEEI's Alex Speier, with an announcement coming as early as Tuesday. Young will replace John Farrell, who left to become the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. 

Young was the pitching coach for the Oakland A's since 2004 and turned down a one-year contract offer to return in 2011. During his time there, A's had a 4.03 ERA, best in the American League. In 2010, despite having the youngest pitching staff in the league, Oakland led the A.L. with a 3.58 ERA. 

It was originally reported that Young interviewed with Theo Epstein and the Red Sox on Monday, Oct. 25.
