One of the more popular and successful Seattle pitching coaches, Bryan Price has been hired to perform the same duties for the Cincinnati Reds.

Price, 47, will join ex-Mariner Arthur Rhodes – and former GM Bill Bavasi – in Cincinnati, working with manager Dusty Baker.

Price left the Mariners after the 2006 season on his own terms, then joined manager Bob Melvin in Arizona as pitching coach of the Diamondbacks.

When Melvin was fired last May, Price resigned the next day and was immediately hired by the Phillies to help their minor league pitchers.

For a more detailed story on Price’s hiring, including quotes, here’s the story.

  1. Glad for Price that he’s got a job, imo he’s one of the best pitching coaches the M’s ever had. OTOH, I feel sorry for BP that he has tp deal with that J@ck @ss Bavasi.
