According to Cory Giger of the Altoona Mirror, Joey Cora has been named the Pirates new third base coach. 

Cora takes over for Rick Sofield, who was fired by the Pirates over the weekend. Last offseason, Cora was brought into the Pirates organization to manage the Altoona Curve. In just his first season, he led the Curve to an Eastern League division title. Cora has experience coaching third base at the big league level, doing so with the Chicago White Sox from 2003 to 2005.
