Change continues for the Rockies.

Major league supplies confirmed Monday night that bullpen coach Darryl Scott has been promoted to the main pitching coach. He replaces Steve Foster, who is stepping down to use more time with his family.

The news was first reported by The Athletic.

Scott, 53, served the last two seasons as the Rockies’ bullpen coach. In the three years prior to that job, Scott was Colorado’s minor-league pitching coordinator.

Foster, 55, had served as Colorado’s pitching coach since 2015.

Last week, Mark Wiley, 73, announced he was planning to return as the Rockies’ director of pitching operations. It’s a job that monitors pitching throughout the organization. A source said that there is a chance that Foster might replace Wiley in that role.

In late April, general manager Jeff Bridich resigned, and later, assistant GMs Zach Wilson and Jon Weil also left the organization.

On Oct. 2, Bill Schmidt, Colorado’s longtime head of scouting, was named the fourth GM in franchise history. After Bridich’s resignation, Schmidt had served as the interim GM.
