Ron Roenicke let go as Boston Red Sox manager; team will begin search immediately

Ron Roenicke will not return to manage the Red Sox in 2021, the club announced before Sunday’s game. A search for his replacement will begin immediately.

Roenicke was hired as Boston’s manager in February, replacing Alex Cora. The Red Sox are 23-36 this season and will play their final game of the year Sunday afternoon in Atlanta.

“Throughout this difficult season, Ron’s consistency and professionalism kept the environment in our clubhouse productive and gave all of our players room to grow and develop,” chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said in a statement. “While we believe that, moving forward, we will benefit from new leadership and new energy, that does not diminish how strongly we feel about Ron. He is a man of the highest character who cares about our players and the Red Sox organization. As bench coach, he helped this team win a world championship. As manager, he showed poise and leadership in navigating an extremely challenging year. We are grateful for all of his contributions in our uniform.”
