Boston Red Sox Manager Search: Pete Mackanin Removed From List Of Potential Candidates

Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin is reportedly no longer under consideration for the vacant position of Boston Red Sox manager, just hours after it was reported that Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum underwent his second interview.

That's according to BoSox general manager Ben Cherington (via Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald):

Cherington: Mackanin out of #RedSox manager mix but chance one more candidate could be added ... Asked if #RedSox could widen the pool of candidates in manager's search, Lucchino said 'Absolutely.'

While Mackanin never held the position full-time, he served as interim manager for both the Pittsburgh Pirates (2005) and the Cincinnati Reds (2007) and cut his managerial teeth in the dugouts of the minor leagues.

The pool of candidates may indeed widen, but Sveum is strongly considered as the front-runner to replace former manager Terry Francona.
