Rangers bring back Mike Maddux as pitching coach

Mike Maddux will make a return to his former role as pitching coach with the Texas Rangers, joining the staff of new manager Bruce Bochy.

The club announced the move Wednesday, as well as revealing that former Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore will join the Rangers as a senior advisor to the baseball operations department.

Maddux, 61, was first a major league pitching coach with the Milwaukee Brewers from 2003-08. He then began a seven-year stint with the Rangers that lasted until 2015. He also was a pitching coach with the Washington Nationals (2016-17) and St. Louis Cardinals through last season.

Maddux, who is the brother of Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux, pitched in the major leagues himself for 15 seasons. He went 39-37 with a 4.05 ERA in 472 appearances (48 starts) for nine different teams.

Moore, 55, took over as the Royals’ general manager in 2006 and helped lead the team to a pair of World Series appearances, including the 2015 title. He was promoted to president of baseball operations before the start of last season but was dismissed in September.
