Tony Pena, DeMarlo Hale interview for Red Sox manager

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Boston Red Sox reportedly interviewing two candidates from other AL East teams, New York's Tony Pena and Baltimore's DeMarlo Hale, for managerial vacancy.

According to WEEI in Boston, the Boston Red Sox have plans to interview two candidates from fellow AL East clubs in the next week for their vacant Manager position. According to a report on the radio station's website, the Red Sox will interview New York Yankees bench coach Tony Pena and Baltimore Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale.

Pena will reportedly interview on Monday, an off-day in the American League Championship Series the Yankees are currently playing against the Detroit Tigers. Pena has major-league managing experience, leading the Kansas City Royals from 2002-05, even winning AL Manager of the Year in 2003.

Hale, who is supposed to interview later in the week, has deeper ties to the Red Sox organization, serving as a bench coach and third base coach in the past for Boston. At the minor league level, Hale has previously managed in the Red Sox system.

The job became open when Bobby Valentine was fired shortly after the Red Sox wrapped up one of the worst seasons in franchise history. In Valentine's first season at the helm Boston finished 69-93 despite having one of the highest payrolls in the league.
