The Tigers announced today that they have fired pitching coach Chris Bosio. Per a club announcement, the decision was due to “insensitive comments. Further explanation was not given in the statement.
It is not entirely apparent at this time precisely what led to the termination. But it seems the issue involves not-yet-publicized, “insensitive comments” made by Bosio to a team employee, GM Al Avila tells reporters including MLB.com’s Jason Beck (Twitter link).
Bosio was in his first year with the organization after spending five seasons in the same role with the Cubs. The 55-year-old pitched in the majors for eleven years, from 1986 through 1996.
