WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals have hired Bo Porter as their third-base coach to replace Pat Listach, while keeping the rest of manager Jim Riggleman's staff.

Porter was with Arizona this season, first as third-base coach, then as bench coach. He was Florida's third-base coach and outfield/baserunning instructor from 2007-09.

Listach reportedly is leaving Washington to become the Chicago Cubs' bench coach.

The Nationals, coming off a third consecutive last-place finish, also announced Tuesday that bench coach John McLaren, pitching coach Steve McCatty, hitting coach Rick Eckstein, first-base coach Dan Radison and bullpen coach Jim Lett will be back in 2011.
