Gary DiSarcina

The Red Sox have had Gary DiSarcina on the team for just one season, but he knows how to coach and manage a team.

After a solid career as a shortstop for the California Angels, DiSarcina got right into coaching. From 2007 to 2009 he was the manager for the Lowell Spinners, Boston’s Short Season-A affiliate. In 2010 he became the Red Sox minor league infield instruction coordinator. Then, DiSarcina returned to the Angels as the assistant to their general managers. In 2013 though, he got the opportunity to manage the Pawtucket Red Sox. In his first season, he led the team to a division title and to the finals of the Governor’s Cup championship.

In 2014, DiSarcina was called to the majors once again and he served as a third base coach and first base coach for the Angels for three full seasons. That’s when Boston poached him to be their bench coach for the 2017 season.

A Billerica, Massachusetts native and UMass alum, Gary DiSarcina knows Boston and he knows that the fans will now tolerate nothing less than a World Series title. Right now, he must be a front-runner for the position.
