Recommended Posts

PITTSBURGH ? (AP) ? Jeff Cox was hired Wednesday as the Pittsburgh Pirates' third base coach, rounding out new manager Jim Tracy's staff.


The 50-year-old Cox was the Florida Marlins' third base coach during the past two seasons after previously being the bench coach and the bullpen coach. He also spent time as a coach with the Kansas City Royals and Montreal Expos.


Cox played briefly in the majors as an Oakland Athletics infielder in 1980 and 1981, and was a minor league manager for 13 seasons. He managed Class A teams for the Pirates in 1987 (Watertown) and 1988 (Augusta, Ga.).


The Pirates previously hired pitching coach Jim Colborn, bench coach Jim Lett, first base coach John Shelby, hitting coach Jeff Manto and bullpen coach Bobby Cuellar. Tracy did not retain any members of former manager Lloyd McClendon's staff.
