The Boston Red Sox are set to interview New York Yankees bench coach Tony Pena for their managerial vacancy on Monday, a team spokesperson confirmed.
Pena will be the second candidate to interview for the position left open when the team fired Bobby Valentine the day after the season. Los Angeles Dodgers third-base coach Tim Wallach talked to the club about the job on Friday in Boston.
San Diego Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus and Baltimore Orioles third-base coach DeMarlo Hale are also scheduled to interview this week, according to a report on WEEI.com.
The man widely considered the team's preferred candidate, Toronto manager John Farrell, is under contract with the Blue Jays for another year. As of Monday morning, Farrell had not been contacted regarding the Red Sox job, according to a baseball source.
