D-backs' Goldschmidt brings home a Silver Slugger
NOV 06, 2013 3:06p ET
Former St. Louis pitching coach Dave Duncan has been rumored to be a candidate for a similar position with the D-backs, but Duncan told FOX's Ken Rosenthal in September that "I really don’t think I would coach again -- not right now, anyway. But if someone is interested, I’d listen to whatever they’re thinking about.”
Duncan, 68, seemed to be interested in a front office role, telling Rosenthal the reason he would not coach again is “the grind.” Cincinnati also has an opening for a pitching coach after promoting Bryan Price to manager, but the Reds are expected to bring back pitching assistant Mack Jenkins in some capacity. Cincinnati general manager Walt Jocketty was in St. Louis when Duncan coached the Cardinals. Duncan retired after the 2011 World Series to be with his wife, Jeanine, who passed away from brain cancer in June.
