Chris Young Lands Coaching Job With Cubs

Chris Young

One of the first moves that the Phillies made this offseason was to relieve pitching coach Chris Young of his duties.  In his first season with the club, Young reportedly had difficulty communicating with pitchers in an effective matter.  Despite a rocky year with the Phillies, Young already has another coach job lined up.

According to Sahadev Sharma of the Athletic, Young is headed to Chicago:

Young reportedly would have been considered for other positions with the Phillies if he chose.

The Phillies opted to promote Young last offseason instead of losing him to another organization; both the Baltimore Orioles and Atlanta Braves reportedly were interested in hiring Young to be their pitching coach.  The Phillies then dismissed Rick Kranitz to promote Young.  Kranitz went to the Atlanta Braves.
