The Boston Red Sox have officially announced their 2022 coaching staff, which includes three new additions and three promotions from last year’s squad.
Pete Fatse is being named the club’s hitting coach following Tim Hyers’ departure to the Texas Rangers (in the same role), while the Sox added a pair of assistant hitting coaches. Former Rangers hitting coach and ex-Astros minor league hitting coordinator Ben Rosenthal.
The team let go of the unvaccinated first base coach Tom Goodwin, but openly stated it had nothing to due with his vaccination status. Ramon Vazquez shifted from quality control coach to first base coach, filling in for Goodwin. Minor league field coordinator Andy Fox was promoted to the major league field coordinator, and Mike Brenly, a longtime bullpen catcher will be a major league staff assistant.
Here is the staff in full reside; ALL CAPS means it is one of the three additions or it is someone shifting roles within the organization:
