BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Red Sox are expected to name Bob McClure their new pitching coach.

McClure had been hired by Boston last month as a scout, minor league pitching instructor, and special assistant to player development, and is expected to be elevated to pitching coach when the two sides agree to a deal. That deal is not done yet, WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche has confirmed.

The 59-year-old McClure had served as the Kansas City Royals pitching coach since 2006 before being let go in September. He started his coaching career in 1999 with the Colorado Rockies, serving as a pitching coach in their minor league system until taking the Kansas City job.

McClure played 19 Major League seasons for seven teams, mostly as a reliever. He spent 10 years in Milwaukee, and finished his career 68-57 with a 3.81 ERA. He appeared in five games during the 1982 World Series for Milwaukee, taking the loss in Game 7 against the Cardinals. He last pitched in the Majors in 1993 for the Florida Marlins.
