Pitching Coach Newsbeat

Dave Eiland dismissed by Mets |

The Mets are a trainwreck. Again.

The Mets have dismissed pitching coach Dave Eiland, a source told’s Anthony DiComo. Bullpen coach Chuck Hernandez was also let go, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman. The club has not confirmed.

Entering Thursday, the Mets had a 4.67 ERA, which ranked 20th in the Majors. The team has finished a season with a higher mark just twice in its history: in 1962, in the team’s inaugural season, and in 2017.

Washington Nationals: Pitching Coach Derek Lilliquist Fired

Just a few moments ago Mike Rizzo met with the media and announced the Washington Nationals have parted ways with pitching coach Derek Lilliquist. Paul Menhart, who currently is the Nationals minor league pitching coach, will replace Lilliquist.

In his press conference, Rizzo stated that there were “preparation issues” that could have led to this decision to let go of Lilliquist.

Lilliquist took over as the Nationals pitching coach in 2018 after Mike Maddux was let go when Washington parted ways with Dusty Baker. In 2016 and 2017 under Maddux Washington was top three in the National League in team E.R.A. In 2018, Lilliquist’s first year, Washington finished ninth in the National League with a 4.04 team E.R.A.

The producers of Broadway musicals in trouble demonstrate panic by firing their choreographers, and the general managers of baseball teams in trouble demonstrate the same by firing their pitching coaches.
