With Farrell fired, here are the top candidates to be the next Red Sox manager

The Red Sox fired manager John Farrell Wednesday morning and now it’s up to club president Dave Dombrowski to hire the next clubhouse leader. Who might it be? Let’s take a look with some informed speculation as to a list of candidates. 

Those with past/current managing experience

Brad Ausmus – There’s a tie here with Dombrowski, as he hired Ausmus to manage the Tigers. Ausmus didn’t get good results out of the Tigers in his time there, but his name still circulates in rumors for open jobs. 

Ron Gardenhire – Currently the bench coach of the Diamondbacks, Gardenhire has lots of success on his managerial resume, including six AL Central championships with the Twins in 13 years. His name was immediately bandied about Wednesday morning among national reporters on Twitter when the Red Sox job came open. Consider him among the favorites. 

Torey Lovullo – Lovullo was the Red Sox’s bench coach from 2013-2016 and managed the team when Farrell was undergoing chemotherapy in 2015. He just won 93 games in the regular season and the NL Wild Card game with the Diamondbacks as manager. It feels unlikely Lovullo would leave, but you never know. Remember, the Red Sox traded a player (Mike Aviles) in order to hire Farrell away from the Blue Jays. 

Brad Mills – He last managed in 2012.
