Tigers hire Chris Bosio as pitching coach, keep Lloyd McClendon as hitting coach

MLB, Detroit Tigers

DETROIT -- The Tigers are adding Chris Bosio as their pitching coach and keeping Lloyd McClendon as hitting coach.

The team announced new manager Ron Gardenhire's staff Thursday. Dave Clark is staying on as third-base coach, a position he filled under previous manager Brad Ausmus. Rick Anderson will be the bullpen coach, Phil Clark an assistant hitting coach, Steve Liddle the bench coach, Ramon Santiago the first-base coach and Joe Vavra a quality-control coach.

Bosio spent the previous six seasons as pitching coach for the Chicago Cubs, but they parted ways with him as part of a staff shake-up after losing in the National League Championship Series.
