Rays Hire Former Yankee Pitching Coach Eiland

The Rays have been all quiet on the Free Agent front lately but fear not because they have made a signing, albeit for the front office and not the diamond.

The Rays made it official today as they signed former Yankee pitching coach, Dave Eiland to serve as a special assistant to GM Andrew Friedman. According to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times, Eiland will “lend support in the areas of player development, professional scouting and amateur scouting”

Eiland served as the New York Yankees' pitching coach for the last three seasons and was dismissed following the 2010 campaign. Along with his coaching experience, and AL East pedigree, Eiland brings 10 years of major league pitching experience to the Rays including a three-year stint with the then-Devil Rays during the 1998-2000 seasons.
