DiSarcina to manage Pawtucket in 2013
Triple-A Pawtucket has its manager in place for a run at a repeat as Governors' Cup winners.

The Red Sox have hired Massachusetts native Gary DiSarcina away from the Angels, an industry source confirmed to MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez on Tuesday.

DiSarcina spent 2012 as the Angels' Minor League field coordinator. He was named a special assistant to Halos general manager Jerry Dipoto in October.

"This is 50 miles from home, and I miss managing," DiSarcina told the Los Angeles Times. "Jerry could have denied the Red Sox permission to speak to me, but he left the decision up to me."

DiSarcina replaces Arnie Beyeler, who was added to Boston's Major League staff as its first-base coach under manager John Farrell. Beyeler led the PawSox to an International League championship in 2012, his second year managing the team.

DiSarcina was born in Malden, Mass., and spent time in the Red Sox organization from 2007-10, including as a manager for the Class A Lowell Spinners. DiSarcina played in the Majors from 1989-2000 and went to the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

CSNNE.com first reported the hiring Tuesday.
