The Orioles have granted the Boston Red Sox permission to interview Rick Peterson for their pitching coach position, and he will interview for the job, an industry source confirmed.
Peterson spent this year as the Orioles’ director of pitching development.
He was previously a pitching coach for the Oakland Athletics, New York Mets, and Milwaukee Brewers.
Peterson will be the second member of the organization to interview with the Red Sox this offseason. Third-base coach DeMarlo Hale interviewed for Boston’s managerial job, which ultimately went to John Farrell.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe first reported that Peterson received permission to interview with the Red Sox.
