Red Sox hire former Phillies GM Ruben Amaro as first base coach
The Boston Red Sox have hired former Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. as their first base coach, the team announced Monday.
Amaro was fired as the team’s GM in September, and has worked in the front office ever since 1998, when his playing career concluded and he took the assistant general manager position in Philadelphia. He assumed the general manager role in 2009, with the Phillies losing to the Yankees in the World Series in his first season.
Arnie Beyeler has been Boston’s first base coach since the 2013 season, but his contract was not renewed for 2016.
