Pete Walker promoted to Blue Jays bullpen coach; Pat Hentgen steps down
TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays promoted Pete Walker to bullpen coach Monday to replace Pat Hentgen, who stepped down from the post for family reasons.
Hentgen, a former Cy Young award winner with Toronto, will remain with the organization as a special assistant.
Last season, the 42-year-old Walker served as the pitching coach for double-A New Hampshire, which won the Eastern League title.
Walker played for five teams over eight major-league seasons, including two stints with Toronto (2002-'03, 2005-'06). The right-handed reliever posted a 20-14 record and 4.48 earned-run average in 144 career games.
