Royals hire Guardians' Brian Sweeney as pitching coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals hired Guardians bullpen coach Brian Sweeney as their new pitching coach and Nationals minor league coordinator Jose Alguacil as their infield coach Thursday, filling two of the spots on new manager Matt Quatraro's staff.

The 48-year-old Sweeney spent five seasons on the Guardians staff, including the last three overseeing the bullpen. He also spent time in the Phillies' player development system after an 18-year playing career career that spanned time with Seattle and San Diego to three years pitching in Japan and time with Italy in the World Baseball Classic.

Alguacil had spent 15 years in the Giants organization before spending last season in Washington. He worked in various roles in San Francisco, including infield coordinator, minor league manager and big league first base coach, after a nine-year playing career and beginning his coaching career with the Expos and Nationals.
