Pirates dismiss 3B coach Joey Cora after 5 seasons

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have dismissed third base coach Joey Cora after five seasons at the post.

The Pirates announced the move Saturday, less than a week after they finished 61-101 and last in the NL Central.

"We would like to thank Joey for his passion for the job and his commitment in continuously helping our players grow as big leaguers," Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said. "Even though this was a difficult decision, we wanted to make it now out of respect for Joey so that it allows him to immediately be able to pursue other opportunities."
