Juan Nieves’ Job With Boston Red Sox As Challenging, Important As Ever

Red Sox pitching coach Juan Nieves has his hands full. Nieves, who accompanied manager John Farrell to Boston before the 2013 season, went from working with a veteran-laden starting rotation to teaching a staff full of up-and-coming hurlers in a matter of days.
