Stewart working with Oakland A’s pitchers
Dave Stewart is back with the Oakland Athletics as a spring training instructor. The 1989 World Series MVP for Oakland will spend the first five days of camp working with pitchers. Stewart, who also pitched for the Blue Jays, was Arizona’s general manager from 2014 to 2016. “Feels right. I wore this uniform for a long time. I’m really excited about having the opportunity to work with the pitchers,” Stewart said Wednesday. Melvin hopes pitchers learn about mound presence from Stewart and gain confidence.
