An ex-Milwaukee Brewers pitcher from 2006-2010 was recently let go from his job duties as a pitching coach. He had been with this American League East team since 2019, but was fired upon the conclusion of the 2023 season along with third base coach Carlos Febles.
Former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Dave Bush was fired by the Boston Red Sox.
Dave Bush initially joined the Red Sox when Ron Roenicke was the interim manager. He remained on the staff when Alex Cora was re-hired. Throughout his tenure Boston’s pitching staff ranked 23rd overall in ERA.
Injuries to key members of the starting rotation may have mitigated the impact that Dave Bush had. Corey Kluber, James Paxton, Tanner Houck and Chris Sale all dealt with injuries. On top of that younger pitchers were forced to step up and struggled in a competitive American League East division.
How did Dave Bush do as a pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers?
Across five seasons Dave Bush ate a lot of innings for the Brewers. On three occasions he made over 30 starts, in 2008 he finished with 29, and 2009 21. His ERA across 870 innings pitched was 4.80. On three occasions he pitched a complete game with two of them being a shutout.
It will be interesting to see where Dave Bush goes next in his coaching career. At 43 years old and nine years of major league baseball pitching experience he has a lot to offer.
