Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux and Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. are the Red Sox’s next interviewees, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.
Texas and Cleveland both granted permission for the interviews, which come on the heels of Boston speaking to Philadelphia bench coach Pete Mackanin earlier this week.
Alomar previously expressed interest in replacing Ozzie Guillen with the White Sox, but never actually got an interview in Chicago. Maddux is also speaking to the Cubs about replacing Mike Quade, which means the Red Sox may end up fighting Theo Epstein over him.
