Alicea not returning

The Red Sox are bringing five of their six coaches back for 2009. First base/infielders coach Luis Alicea was the lone man not offered a 2009 contract, the team announced in a release.

Alicea, a former Red Sox second baseman, had been on manager Terry Francona’s staff for the past two seasons.

DeMarlo Hale (third base/outfielders), Dave Magadan (hitting), John Farrell (pitching), Brad Mills (bench), and Gary Tuck (bullpen) have all been invited to return.
