Harkey, Stottlemyre complete Diamondbacks staff

The Arizona Diamondbacks have completed their coaching staff by

naming Mike Harkey pitching coach and Mel Stottlemyre Jr. bullpen


Harkey has held various coaching positions the past 14 seasons

with San Diego, the Florida Marlins, Chicago Cubs and New York

Yankees. He was Joe Girardi’s bullpen coach with the Yankees the

past six seasons.

Harkey pitched in 131 games with the Cubs, Colorado, Oakland,

the California Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers, going 36-36 with a

4.49 ERA.

Stottlemyre returns to Arizona, where he was pitching coach in

2009 and 2010. He held minor league positions in the Diamondbacks

system for 11 seasons.

Harkey replaces the fired Charles Nagy. Stottlemyre replaces

Glen Sherlock, who was moved to third base coach after Matt

Williams was hired to manage the Washington Nationals.
