Ron Roenicke won’t return as Red Sox’ manager in 2021

The Red Sox conclude one of their worst seasons in franchise history on Sunday. And once it’s over, Ron Roenicke will officially no longer be the manager of the team.

The Red Sox announced on Sunday that Roenicke will not return as manager next season.

Roenicke, 64, took over as the team’s manager after serving as Boston’s bench coach for two years under Alex Cora. When Cora was suspended from baseball for his role in the Astros’ sign-stealing situation, the Red Sox ultimately went with a familiar face in Roenicke to handle managerial duties in 2020.

The team entered Sunday with a 23-36 record, a .390 winning percentage that ranks as the 10th worst mark in the team’s 120-year history. Prior to this season, Roenicke owned a career record of 342-331 as a manager of the Brewers from 2011-15.
