BOSTON (AP) (And WTIC News) _ The Boston Red Sox have hired Juan Nieves to join
John Farrell’s staff as pitching coach.

Nieves, 47, spent 14 seasons in the Chicago White Sox
organization, the last five as bullpen coach.

Nieves is a graduate of Avon Old Farms School.

Over three seasons in the major leagues, Nieves had a 32-25
record and a 4.71 ERA with the Milwaukee Brewers. He was the first
pitcher in Brewers history and first native of Puerto Rico to throw
a no-hitter. He had three shutouts as a rookie in 1986 and the next
year he won 14 games and struck out 163 in 195.2 innings.
