Tito's Tribe Hires Away Pitching Coach Carl Willis

Now former Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis has been hired by the Cleveland Indians in the same role—one he held on the Indians from 2003-2009. Willis served two-plus years in Boston—producing 2017's second-best American League team ERA (3.70). While the hiring of Alex Cora as new skipper did not necessarily mean the departure of the old coaching staff, they have all been "encouraged" to seek opportunities elsewhere if available.
