Despite early reports, Triple-A pitching coach Charles Nagy has emerged as the front-runner for the Diamondbacks pitching coach position. Earlier reports suggested that former A's pitching coach Curt Young was headed to the Diamondbacks, but that doesn't appear to be the case anymore.
Nagy, who posted a 129-105 record with a 4.51 ERA over 13 seasons with the Indians and Padres, was the Cleveland Indians' Triple-A pitching coach for the past two seasons and served as a coach for the Angels' Triple-A team between 2006-2007.
Nagy's best year came in 1992 when he posted a 17-10 record with a 2.96 ERA in 33 starts. He had six straight seasons of 15 wins or more, including a 4th place finish in Cy Young voting in 1996.
