Frank Viola will begin coaching with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday night

Frank Viola will begin his duties as the pitching coach for Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday night.

Viola hasn’t been able to coach while recovering from open heart surgery in April.

Tom Signore had been substituting as pitching coach in Las Vegas until Viola was ready to return. Signore will now return to his job as pitching coach for Single-A Brooklyn.

Great the sooner Frankie. And Wally get to Flushing the better!

It's hysterical that he's on the same coaching staff with Backman.  Those two did not like each other at all during their playing days.

Great to have him back working with our pitchers. Hope to see him with us in the majors very soon.
