Red Sox manager search: Brad Ausmus to interview with Boston

Brad Ausmus will reportedly be interview by the Boston Red Sox for the team's managerial vacancy. Ausmus, a former major league catcher and special assistant to the GM of the San Diego Padres, is the second known candidate that the Red Sox have contacted in their search to replace Bobby Valentine.

Ausmus joins Tim Wallach, the third base coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, as the public candidates for the managerial position. Ausmus has never managed a team professionally, but did serve as the manager of Team Israel during its World Baseball Classic qualifying run this year.

In 1993, Ausmus began his playing career with the Padres, playing four seasons in San Diego before moving to the Detroit Tigers (1996, 1999-2000), the Houston Astros (1997-1998, 2001-2008) and the Dodgers (2009-2010). Ausmus compiled a career .251 batting average with 80 home runs and 607 RBI in 18 seasons and 1,971 games.

Ausmus declined an opportunity to manage the Astros earlier this year.
