Red Sox to interview Alex Cora for managerial opening


According to Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski is traveling to NY on Sunday to meet with Houston Astros bench coach Alex Cora about the job left vacant by the firing of John Farrell.

As Tigers fans should remember, Dombrowski was the one who hired Ausmus to replace Jim Leyland in 2013.

Former Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has taken his name out of the running for the Mets gig, though he does seem to remain interested in others, including the opening with the Boston Red Sox.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports tweeted on Monday that Ausmus is one of the candidates for the Red Sox gig - which became open last week when John Farrell was sacked.

ESPN's Marly Rivera adds Cora will be part of the first round of interviews for the Mets and Tigers, and Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News says Cora will interview for the Mets' job this week.

Alex Cora is a busy man this month, splitting time between his duties as bench coach of the Houston Astros and handling inquiries from teams looking to fill managerial openings.

Interest in Ausmus comes as little surprise.

Cora seems like he'd be the ideal fit in Boston. Ausmus, of course, is familiar with Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, having worked under him in Detroit. I've read that the Red Sox should hire Gabe Kapler.
