Gary DiSarcina will be announced as Pawtucket’s new manager at an 11 a.m. press conference Friday at McCoy Stadium.
DiSarcina, a Billerica native who resides in Plymouth, recently received a promotion in with the Angels and would have been a special assistant to Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto.
“It was a great opportunity I just couldn’t pass up,” DiSarcina said. “The Red Sox asked permission to speak to me and Jerry (DePoto) could have turned them down. But he let me speak to them and we came away with an agreement during the Winter Meetings in Nashville.”
DiSarcina was a manager of Boston’s at Single A team in Lowell for three years and also managed team Italy. He is also a former NESN color analyst and former major league shortstop for the Angels.
