ESPN: "Farrell likes Peterson for pitching coach"

ESPN: "Farrell likes Peterson for pitching coach"

The Red Sox are expected to make a decision on their new pitching coach by Tuesday, and new manager John Farrell is “all in” on longtime pitching coach Rick Peterson as his choice, according to a baseball source.

Peterson, a New Jersey shore resident who was stranded for several days because of Hurricane Sandy, met Saturday morning with GM Ben Cherington, CEO Larry Lucchino, Farrell and VP/assistant GM Mike Hazen.

The interview went “very well,” the source said, with Peterson the preferred candidate of Farrell, who had Peterson as a coach when he was a pitcher in Cleveland’s minor-league system and credited Peterson with putting him on track to the big leagues.

Looks like he won't be back.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason we can't match the money and offer him a contract one year longer than Boston. Of course, if he wants to be back in the big leagues we can't match that.

They're tight and Peterson would have a lot to work with in Boston. 8-)

If he does go they can always find someone else in the biomechanics community if they believe it really is the next big thing in pitching.
