Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston reports that the Red Sox will begin interviewing candidates for their managerial opening Friday and Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald has uncovered one name on their list: Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach.
According to Silverman the Red Sox have contacted Wallach and he’s interested, so he’s expected to come in for an interview soon.
Silverman adds that the Red Sox are still interested in Blue Jays manager John Farrell, but aren’t counting on being able to work out compensation with Toronto. Wallach’s contract with the Dodgers expired at the end of the regular season, so he’s a free agent.
