David Lundquist – IronPigs pitching coach

Similar to Steve Karsay being connected to Mickey Callaway, David Lundquist would be a match should Dusty Wathan be promoted from Lehigh Valley.

Lundquist pitched in just 37 major league games over three seasons with the White Sox and Padres before retiring in 2004.

The advantage of Lundquist is similar to the potential hiring of Wathan as the manager. The young pitchers he’s worked with know him well and they can continue to focus on what they’ve worked on in Lehigh Valley.

Lundquist and Wathan aren’t the strongest names of the bunch, but they’ll surely be candidates as the interview process rolls on into November.
