The Boston Red Sox will bring back Alex Cora, whose prior 27-month run as manager ended abruptly in January when MLB determined heâd played a central role as the bench coach of the 2017 Astros in an illegal sign-stealing scheme and the Red Sox were under investigation for a lesser but similar infraction.
Cora led the Red Sox to the 2018 World Series championship in his first season, becoming the fifth manager to do so in MLB history and the first as a Puerto Rican manager.
