Red Sox considering Pete Walker for coaching staff

New Red Sox manager John Farrell has already hired two coaches off his staff in Toronto. A third could be on the way.

Farrell, sources said, met with Toronto bullpen coach Pete Walker on Thursday and is considering him for a spot on the staff.

Walker, 43, spent last season with the Jays. He was the pitching coach of their Double A affiliate in New Hampshire in 2011. Walker is an East Lyme, Conn., native who played at UConn and pitched in parts of eight seasons in the majors.

The Red Sox have hired Torey Lovullo (bench coach) and Brian Butterfield (third base coach) off the Toronto staff.
