The Dodgers have hired Ron Roenicke as a special assistant to the general manager, Tara Sullivan of the Boston Globe reports.
Roenicke previously managed the Red Sox in 2020, when the club went 24-36. The Red Sox then moved on from Roenicke and brought back their prior skipper, Alex Cora, who had Roenicke on his staff from 2018-19. Roenicke also managed the Brewers from 2011-15, and his teams have put up an overall record of 342-331.
Los Angeles isn’t new territory for the 64-year-old Roenicke, a California native and former outfielder who played for the Dodgers and then spent time on both their coaching staff and the Angels’. He was a third base coach for those teams from 2015-17 before going to Boston.
