The Cubs’ major-league coaching staff received one more addition Monday, as the team hired former MLB pitcher Daniel Moskos to be their new assistant pitching coach. Moskos, 35, was a minor-league pitching coach in the Yankees’ farm system for the last two seasons.

Sources tell the Sun-Times that Moskos will take on some of the duties left by former Cubs associate pitching/catching/strategy coach Mike Borzello, who left the organization last month.

Moskos was the pitching coach for Double-A Somerset last season, helping guide the team to a 3.38 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and .212 opponent batting average, all the lowest among Double-A clubs. Moskos joined the Yankees as pitching coach for Single-A Charleston in 2020 after he worked with Driveline Baseball in Seattle, Wash.

The former 2007 first-round pick played one season with the Pirates in 2011, going 1-1 with a 2.96 ERA and was 32-30 with a 4.34 ERA over nine minor-league seasons.
