The Boston Red Sox have officially hired their next manager. Ron Roenicke has been named the team’s manager.
Roenicke has been appointed the manager on an interim basis. He will replace former manager Alex Cora, who was fired for his involvement in a cheating scandal.
With the interim status, he will likely be let go at the end of the season. Or, the Red Sox will name him the permanent manager going forward.

MLB investigated the Houston Astros for their cheating scandal. Following their investigation, three managers were fired.
Cora was one of the three. The Astros fired manager A.J. Hinch after he was suspended for one year and the New York Mets fired manager Carlos Beltrán.
The former Red Sox manager is also looking at a suspension. He allegedly was part of the sign-cheating scandal with the Astros in 2017 and again with the Red Sox in 2018.
Both teams won the World Series Championship against the Los Angeles Dodgers. However, while the Astros and Dodgers cheated, they will not lose their Championships.
Roenicke was part of the Red Sox staff in 2018, as he was Cora’s bench coach. He also has previous managerial experience with the Milwaukee Brewers.
The 63-year-old managed the Brewers for five seasons. He went 342-331 in 673 games with the Brewers, including a .508 win percentage.

He managed the Brewers through 25 games in 2015 before being fired. His best record with the team was in his first season in 2011 when he guided the team to a 96-66 record.
