Red Sox promote LeVangie from bullpen coach to pitching coach

Red Sox promote LeVangie from bullpen coach to pitching coach”

Expectations are high for the Boston Red Sox in 2018, but one member of the Red Sox's family believes the team's new manager can weather the hype. "I'm just thankful for the opportunity".

The Red Sox also named former major league infielder Ramon Vazquez as a major league coach in charge of filtering information from the scouting and analytics departments and presenting it to players and coaches.

For years, LeVangie has been praised for his work behind the scenes.

"My love for the game, my love for the Boston Red Sox has kind of taken this whole process to another level for me", LeVangie said.

Dombrowski said the Red Sox "had interest in a couple" of pitching coaches who went elsewhere, and they were still looking to fill the position when organizational meetings began Monday at Fenway Park.

It wasn't easy for the Red Sox to assemble a coaching staff given that Cora was chosen as the next manager while the postseason was still underway and his focus was needed as bench coach of the eventual World Series champion Houston Astros.

"Very impressed with Dana since when I played here". "It seems like we talk the same language as far as the game". I always envisioned my staff to have somebody like that.

LeVangie said he prides himself on preparation, and the Sox also value him for his advance scouting work. "He is well-prepared and versatile enough that he can work with catchers and be a pitching coach". An MLB advanced scout for the past five seasons with Boston, Langone first joined the organization in 2009 as a baseball operations intern before being promoted to advance scouting coordinator from 2010-12. He was inducted into Boston College's Hall of Fame in 2008.

In 27 years with the Red Sox, Dana LeVangie has been a minor league catcher, a bullpen catcher, a pro scout, a major league advance scout, a catching instructor and a bullpen coach.

"I think he's going to be an asset, a plus for us", Cora said.

"He was right next to our advance [scouting] team and he was a filter and a guy that helped the players connect with the advanced team", Cora said Wednesday of Cintron. "There was certain information that players sometimes get scared of, but the way we communicate the information to the players was very positive and alex was a very big part of it".
