Found November 08, 2012 on Fenway West:
Still trying to recoil from the Valentine Disaster, the Red Sox have gone with another low-profile addition to the coaching staff. Juan Nieves has served the past five seasons with the Chicago White Sox as the bullpen coach. Nieves is a former pitcher, and although his career was short and mediocre for the most part, he threw a no-hitter, becoming the only Milwaukee Brewer to ever do so. He was also the second youngest pitcher to ever throw a no-hitter. Now John Farrel’s staff is only missing a hitting coach. Tino Martinez has been interviewed for the spot, but GM Ben Cherington has stated they are considering using two-men to fill the vacancy.
