The Chicago Cubs are expected to interview former Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price and John Farrell, who worked most recently with the Reds’ scouting department, for their vacant pitching coach position, according to a report from 670thescore.com’s Bruce Levine.
The New York Mets interviewed Price and Jim Riggleman for their bench coach vacancy, according to a report from Newsday’s Tim Healey.
Price, who was in his fifth season as the Reds’ manager when the team fired him in April and replaced him with interim skipper Riggleman, was drawing interest from the Atlanta Braves and the Minnesota Twins – as well as other teams seeking pitching coaches, according to a report from The Athletic’s David O’Brien.
Price was a pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Reds before he replaced Dusty Baker as Cincinnati’s manager in October of 2013. Price’s record as the Reds’ skipper was 279-387.
Jerry Crasnick reported last month that Price has received interest from several clubs as a pitching coach candidate, but the teams weren’t specified.
Farrell managed the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011 and 2012 and managed the Boston Red Sox from 2013 to 2017.
