Indians hire Charles Nagy

The Cleveland Indians have hired former pitcher Charles Nagy as

their pitching coach at Triple-A Columbus.

Nagy pitched for the Indians from 1990-2002. He won 129 games

and was a major contributor as Cleveland won six AL Central titles

and made two World Series appearances in a seven-year span. A

three-time All-Star, Nagy was inducted into the Indians’ Hall of

Fame last summer.

Nagy, 42, worked as a special assistant to Indians general

manager Mark Shapiro from 2004-05. In Columbus, he replaces Scott

Radinsky, who was promoted to new Indians manager Manny Acta’s

staff in Cleveland as bullpen coach.

Nagy was the pitching coach for the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees in

the Los Angeles Angels’ organization from 2006-2007.
