The Boston Red Sox have hired Bob McClure as pitching coach and moved Tim Bogar to bench coach. The Red Sox said Friday Alex Ochoa will be first base coach on manager Bobby Valentine's staff and Jerry Royster will be the third base coach. Bogar and Ochoa both played under Valentine with the New York Mets. Bogar is in his fourth year with the Red Sox, spending the last two as the third base coach. McClure recently joined the Red Sox organization as a special assignment scout and instructor. He spent the previous six seasons as the pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals. Ochoa was the hitting coach for Boston's Class-A affiliate in Salem of the Carolina League. Royster was most recently the manager of the Lotte Giants of the Korea Baseball Organization from 2008-10.
