Greg Maddux is USA pitching coach in WBC
Maddux joins the staff managed by Joe Torre. The other coaches named on Monday: Larry Bowa (bench coach), Marcel Lachemann (bullpen/pitching coach), Dale Murphy (first base coach), Gerald Perry (hitting coach) and Willie Randolph (third base coach). Maddux, who won four NL Cy Young Awards and was an eight-time All-Star during his big league career, will oversee Team USA's pitching staff with Lachemann.
The WBC will take place in March. Maddux worked with Rangers pitchers in spring training and joined the club (and some of its minor-league affiliates) from time to time during the season to offer instruction.
