7) Carlos Febles

Carlos Febles has been the third base coach for the Boston Red Sox since 2018 after an extensive managerial and coaching career in the minors with them.

Febles, 45, played 10 seasons in professional baseball including six seasons in the majors with Kansas City and he retired after the 2004 season.

He started coaching in 2007 as he was a coach for the Red Sox Short-Season A team before becoming their hitting coach at High-A in 2008. He was there for three seasons until he started managing for them starting in 2011. He managed one season at Short-Season A, two at Single-A, two at High-A, and two at Double-A before his promotion to the majors.

Before the Red Sox rehired Alex Cora for the 2021 season, the Red Sox interviewed Febles for their managerial opening.

8) Ron Roenicke

Currently, Ron Roenicke is a special assistant for the Los Angeles Dodgers and while he’s a bit older (65), he definitely could be a veteran choice for a team in the near future.

He was a player for them in the early 80s and once he retired, he became a coach for them, as he was Tommy LaSorda’s bench coach in 1992 and 1993. He decided to go the minors to manage for the Dodgers through the 1999 season when he jumped over to the Angels to join the MLB coaching staff of his former Dodgers teammate, Mike Scioscia.

Roenicke was Scioscia’s third base coach from 2000 through 2005 when he was promoted to bench coach with Joe Maddon leaving to manage the Devil Rays. Roenicke served as bench coach from 2006 through 2010, when Roenicke became the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers for the 2011 season. He was fired 25 games into the 2015 season but rejoined the Angels by the end of the season as third base coach. He was third base coach through 2017 when he became Alex Cora’s bench coach in 2018 and 2019.

With Cora being suspended for the entire 2020 season, Roenicke managed the Red Sox in 2020 before they re-hired Cora and fired Roenicke for the 2021 season.
