Red Sox step up search for hitting coach
AMHERST, Mass. -- Another prospective Red Sox hitting coach, Victor Rodriguez, interviewed with the club on Tuesday.

"We'll probably have one or two others later this week," general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday night at an event at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

The Red Sox also plan to hold interviews for their vacant first-base coaching position this week, Cherington said.

Rodriguez, 51, has been the Red Sox's Minor League hitting coordinator for six seasons. His son, Victor Luis Rodriguez, is a scout in the organization. The elder Rodriguez played in the Majors briefly, in 1984 and '89.

Rick Schu, 50, is also a candidate for one of the coaching positions the Sox are trying to fill. Schu has been an organizational hitting instructor for the Nationals since 2009.
