Ex-Yankees Pitching Coach Eiland Joins Kansas City Royals Staff

Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- The Kansas City Royals hired former New York Yankees pitching coach Dave Eiland, who worked with the staff that won the 2009 World Series during three years in the Bronx.

Eiland, 45, was replaced by Larry Rothschild in New York following the 2010 Major League Baseball season and spent this year as a special assistant for the Tampa Bay Rays. Eiland succeeds Bob McClure in Kansas City and is the final addition to the Royals’ coaching staff.

The Royals had a 4.44 earned run average this season, ranking 27th out of 30 major-league teams, and allowed an American League-high 557 walks during a 71-91 season.

The 2009 Yankees’ staff registered 103 regular-season wins and struck out 1,260 batters, the second-most in franchise history. Before replacing Ron Guidry in 2008, Eiland spent five seasons as a pitching coach in the Yankees’ minor-league system.
