Jim Benedict to remain with Pirates

Jared Wickerham

Pitching guru Jim Benedict will remain with the Pirates, Rob Biertempfel writes. Benedict had interviewed for the Phillies' pitching coach job.

Benedict has worked with a number of Pirates pitchers who have made dramatic improvements, including Francisco Liriano and Charlie Morton. As I wrote when we learned he was interviewing, it's impossible to measure his precise impact on the team, but it's safe to assume it's a positive one. It's good to know he'll be back.
