The Red Sox’ 2020 coaching staff appears to be set after the team officially announced some additions on Thursday afternoon.
As reported Wednesday, Dave Bush has been made the Red Sox’ new pitching coach. The 39-year-old former pitcher has been with the organization since 2016, when he was hired to be a pitching development analyst.
Bush served as the Red Sox’ minor league pitching coordinator in 2019 prior to this promotion, where he will replace Dana LeVangie, who was reassigned as a scout.
Bush will be joined by Kevin Walker, who was promoted as the Red Sox’ assistant pitching coach. The 43-year-old Walker has spent the last 11 seasons with the organization, including the last two as Triple-A Pawtucket’s pitching coach.
Peter Fatse was announced as the Red Sox’ assistant hitting coach, where the 32-year-old will work under hitting coach Tim Hyers. The Holyoke, Mass., native spent the 2019 season as the Twins’ minor league hitting coordinator, which was his first coaching role with a major league team.
Rey Fuentes was named the Red Sox’ mental skills coordinator. Fuentes, 40, spent the last seven seasons with the Cubs.
