Red Sox announce minor league staffs

The Red Sox on Wednesday announced their minor league staffs, headlined by a promotion for Kevin Boles, who was elevated from managing the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs to the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox.

Boles, who managed the Sea Dogs for the past three seasons, takes the place of Gary DiSarcina, who left the organization to join the Los Angeles Angels coaching staff. Returning to the PawSox will be pitching coach Rich Sauveur, hitting coach Dave Joppie and athletic trainer Jon Lochim. The Triple-A PawSox are also adding Bruce Crabbe to the coaching staff. He managed the Short-A Lowell Spinners last season.

High-A Salem manager Billy McMillion will be elevated to take Boles’ job in managing the Sea Dogs and Carlos Febles will take McMillon’s job in Salem. Febles spent the last two years as the manager at Single-A Greenville.
