Following the dismissal of Pitching Coach Dave Eiland the Mets will replace him with Phil Regan who had worked for the Organization in the Minors.
Regan, 82, worked as a driving pitching trainer, usually focusing on the lower levels of minors.
Regan had a 13-year big league career (at the Tigers, Dodgers, Cubs and White Sox) before becoming a coach. Since 1973 he has been coach and manager at various academic and professional levels, including 1995 as Orioles manager and from 2009 to 2015 as a pitching coach for the Mets High A subsidiary.
Regarding the modern players, Regan said on Tuesday that he "there is no big difference" to what they were when he started.
"I think kids today" They want you to be honest, "Regan said as he talked to Syracuse.com," I never lie to them. I try to enter and not change their entire delivery. I do not believe in it or take away their pitches. But there are a lot of little basic things that you do I have to do it as a pitcher. And sometimes someone can see that, maybe just a small thing. Try it and if you like it, stick with it.
Regan also touched on how he sustains his energy. [1
