Red Sox Interview Alex Cora And Brad Ausmus For Managerial Position

Published

on

The Boston Red Sox are in need of a new manager following John Farrell’s departure, and general manager Dave Dombrowski is wasting no time with that search.

On Sunday, the team interviewed top candidate Alex Cora for the position, followed by Brad Ausmus on Monday.

Cora, 41, is currently the bench coach for the Houston Astros. He played for the Red Sox from 2005 to 2008 as a utility infielder, hitting .252 in 698 at-bats (.243 career average).

Ausmus, 48, has been the manager for the Detroit Tigers the last four seasons. The team announced he would not return in 2018 after they struggled with a 64-98 record this past season, which was tied with the San Francisco Giants for the worst record in baseball.

Overall, Ausmus led Detroit to a 314-332 record (.486 win %) in his four years at the helm.

Other notable candidates rumored to be frontrunners for Boston’s managerial role include Ron Gardenhire, Jason Varitek, Gabe Kapler, Terry Collins, and DeMarlo Hale.
