McAdam: Red Sox appear half-set on pitching coach vacancies

The announcement earlier this month that Dana LeVangie would be re-assigned to a scouting position and Brian Bannister would focus entirely on pitching development created two openings on the Red Sox coaching staff.

It now appears the Red Sox have decided on how to fill one of those vacancies.

According to a baseball source, Dave Bush, who last year served as the team's pitching coordinator/performance will likely serve one of the staff's two pitching spots. It's unclear whether he will serve as the primary pitching coach (the role held by LeVangie the last two seasons) or the assistant spot (held by Bannister).
