”I have to take seriously what the comments were,” Tigers general manager Al Avila said, declining to give details. ”And, the action we took was appropriate.”
The Tigers promoted bullpen coach Rick Anderson to replace Bosio. Roving pitching instructor A.J. Sager will be the team’s bullpen coach until Triple-A Toledo pitching coach Jeff Pico takes his place next week.
Avila said Bosio made the comments recently and they were brought to Avila’s attention Tuesday. Avila decided Wednesday to terminate Bosio’s contract after the team investigated the situation and spoke to all of the people involved.
Avila said what Bosio said violated team policy and his contract, though Avila otherwise spoke highly of Bosio’s job performance.
”He definitely was a good pitching coach,” Avila said.
Tigers right-hander Alex Wilson said he and teammates heard rumors of what had taken place.
”We’re sorry to everyone that it affected Tom Kuhnhackl Jersey ,” Wilson said. ”It’s not a good day here. It’s a sad day. But we’re going to move forward, and hopefully this brings us closer than we’ve ever been.”
Bosio, a former major league pitcher, was in his first season as Detroit’s pitching coach after serving in the same role for six years with the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs didn’t renew Bosio’s contract after last season and hired Jim Hickey to replace him, reuniting manager Joe Maddon with his pitching coach in Tampa Bay.
The 55-year-old Bosio was 94-93 over an 11-season career, mostly as a starter Authentic Harrison Phillips Jersey , with Milwaukee and Seattle. The right-hander threw a no-hitter in 1993 for the Mariners against the Boston Red Sox.
Bosio was hailed for his work with the Cubs’ pitchers, helping them have the lowest ERA in the major leagues from 2015 through 2017. Chicago won the 2016 World Series and reached the NL Championship Series last year and three years ago with Bosio as its pitching coach.
His first job in the majors was in 2003 as the pitching coach for Lou Piniella in Tampa Bay. He also has worked as a pitching coach in the minor leagues and an advance scout for the Brewers, who named him interim pitching coach in 2009.
Panthers owner-for-a-few-more-hours Jerry Richardson is expected to make an appearance today.
Disgraced by recent allegations of workplace misconduct, Richardson hasn’t been spotted during the sale of his team to David Tepper, but he’s kept a low profile in recent years anyway.
Accoording to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he’s scheduled to聽address the owners one final time before they vote to approve the sale at their meeting in Atlanta.
The 81-year-old Richardson was once one of the most powerful owners in the league Adidas Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey , a close confidante (if not patron) of commissioner Roger Goodell. But he was on the wrong side of the league’s efforts to get back to Los Angeles.
He was pushing for a joint stadium in Carson for the Chargers and Raiders, a very old-NFL move which fell by the wayside for bigger new-money deals in Inglewood by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, and eventually the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas.
Losing that power struggle to a new guard of owners was part of the reason, along with his health, that he backed away from most league business in recent years. He stepped aside from all his committee assignments, and only showed up at the May meeting in 2016 because it was in Charlotte Taven Bryan Jersey , as he had skipped league business for most of the last five years.
Richardson had a heart transplant in February 2009. He’s about to pocket $2.2 billion in cash as part of Tepper’s bid. At some point after that, the league will likely wrap up its investigation into the activity that triggered the sale, which included allegations of sexual and racial harassment.
