Report: Amaro to become Red Sox first-base coach

Ruben Amaro Jr. was fired as the Phillies general manager on Sept. 10, and in the weeks since has not spoken publicly about his dismissal or his future plans.

But according to the Boston Globe, in a surprise move, Amaro is set to become the first-base coach for the Boston Red Sox.

Amaro, 50, does not have previous coaching experience. He had worked in the Phillies' front office since after the 1998 season, his final year as a player, becoming GM in November 2008.

It is perhaps worth noting that Amaro was a teammate of Red Sox manager John Farrell in 1995 with the Cleveland Indians.

The Red Sox parted ways with their first-base coach, Arnie Beyeler, after the season.
