McAdam: Dana LeVangie out as Red Sox pitching coach; other changes to staff announced

Following a season in which their starting rotation failed them badly and contributed to a 24-game drop in their win total, the Red Sox Tuesday announced that Dana LeVangie, who had served as the team's pitching coach in each of the last two seasons, would not return to the role in 2020.

LeVangie will, instead, continue to work for the team as a pro scout.

The Sox announced additional changes to their staff as well, with Brian Bannister ending his time as assistant pitching coach but continuing to serve as Vice President, Pitching Development focused on pitching development programs primarily in the minor leagues.

Meanwhile, Steve Langone, who had served as the manager of advance scouting, will return to a scouting role.

The Sox also confirmed that assistant hitting coach Andy Barkett will not return, a development widely reported last week.
