Red Sox exercise Cora's options for 2023, '24
Alex Cora's second tenure in Beantown has been extended.
The Boston Red Sox exercised their manager's options for the 2023 and '24 campaigns.
Financial terms weren't disclosed.
"He's a tremendous leader and a wonderful partner for what we're trying to do as an organization," chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said, according to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe. "... I'm excited we get to go forward with Alex for a long time."
Cora returned to the Red Sox last fall after serving a one-year suspension for his role in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal. The Red Sox finished in last place in the AL East during their lone season without him.
The 46-year-old had a huge impact on the club's fortunes, as he guided the 2021 Red Sox to 92 wins and their second ALCS appearance in three seasons.
Over his three years managing the Red Sox, Cora's compiled a 284-202 regular-season record. In his first campaign of 2018, he guided the club to 108 wins and a World Series championship.
