    Gary Tuck returns as Red Sox bullpen coach

    Posted by Peter Abraham, Globe StaffNovember 8, 2012 06:54 PM

    INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said this afternoon that Gary Tuck would return to the team as the bullpen coach and catching instructor.

    It will be his seventh season in the position. Tuck had an option on his contract but the Sox negotiated a new deal. Cherington did not disclose the terms.

    Tuck was the bullpen coach under John Farrell from 2007-10. Cherington said he and Farrell both thought it was important to have at least one coach return from last season's staff.

    "Aside from his skill as a catching instructor and a smart baseball guy, he's got a lot of insight into our players from this year and nobody else on the staff was going to have that," Cherington said. "We thought that was important."

    The Red Sox still need to hire a hitting coach and a first base coach.

    Interviews for the hitting coach will begin this weekend. Cherington said there are handful of candidates. The Red Sox received permission from the Yankees to interview Tino Martinez for the job but he was hired by the Miami Marlins this afternoon.

    The first base coach is likely to come from within the organization. Triple A Pawtucket manager Arnie Beyeler is a candidate.

    From all that we get to read, it appears that Tuck was a strong contributor for Francona, but ran into the Valentine buzz saw last year.

    Varitek and Saltalamacchia have raved about him in the past, and he looks good in the bullpen during games.

    There was a bullpen coach name Tuck,

    Who seemed to be down on his luck.

    But Valentine was fired,

    And John Farrell was hired,

    Now when ask to return said, "What the f__!"

    I think Tuck does a great job of answering the bullpen phone and telling the reliever to start warming up.

    I was glad to see Beyeler's name mentioned in the article. It would be nice to see him start getting the MLB experience required to get a shot at managing.
