The Boston Red Sox named Ron Roenicke interim manager Tuesday - a day before the team's first scheduled workout for pitchers and catchers. "We have no reason to think that there's anything that would cause an adverse result for Ron in this investigation, but of course the investigation is not complete". Assuming Roenicke is not implicated, he will likely shed the interim tag.

This will be the second managerial gig for the 63-year-old Roenicke, who spent five seasons as skipper of the Milwaukee Brewers from 2011 to 2015 where he posted a 342-331 mark and reached the National League Championship Series in 2011.

The elevation comes in the wake of former manager Alex Cora's departure over his involvement in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal, as well as Monday's monumental trade which sent Mookie Betts and David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "We are confident that Ron will hit the ground running, and we're excited to work closely with him as he leads our group forward".

The Red Sox have their manager for the 2020 season.
