Former Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey will interview for the same position with the Cubs on Monday, sources confirmed to 670 The Score. Hickey left the Rays at the end of this past season after spending 11 years in Tampa Bay, the first eight working under Joe Maddon before the latter took over as manager as the Cubs. The 56-year-old Hickey has already had conversations with the Cardinals and Red Sox about their vacant pitching coach positions as well, sources said. Hickey has compiled a quality resume in his coaching career. In Tampa Bay, the Rays finished in the top five of the American League in team ERA in eight of the past 10 seasons. Prior to his time in Tampa Bay, Hickey spent 2 1/2 seasons as Houston’s pitching coach. The Astros finished second in the National League in team ERA under Hickey’s guidance in both 2005 and 2006.
