St. Claire dismissed as pitching coach

The Nationals have dismissed Randy St. Claire as pitching coach and replaced him with Steve McCatty, who had the same role with Triple-A Syracuse.

Under St. Claire, the Nationals’ pitching staff ranked 30th with a 5.69 ERA. Most of the problems came from the bullpen, which has blown 12 games thus far.

McCatty has been the team’s Triple-A pitching coach since 2005. He also played in the Major Leagues for nine seasons, all with the Athletics. His best season was in 1981, when he went 14-7 with a 2.33 ERA.
