Bryan Price, who was in his fifth season as the Cincinnati Reds’ manager when the team fired him in April and replaced him with interim skipper Jim Riggleman, is drawing interest from the Atlanta Braves and the Minnesota Twins – as well as other teams seeking pitching coaches, according to a report via Twitter 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.
Riggleman will meet with the New York Mets soon about their bench coach vacancy, according to multiple reports.
