BOSTON (AP) - The Red Sox have appointed Dana Levangie their bullpen coach.
Levangie, a major-league advance scout for Boston the past seven seasons, replaces Gary Tuck, who retired last week after six years as bullpen coach.
The appointment of Levangie on Tuesday completes new manager John Farrell's coaching staff.
Levangie, 43, also will help with advance scouting. He has spent all 22 of his pro seasons in the Boston organization after being drafted in the 14th round in June 1991. He was a catcher for six seasons in the Red Sox minor-league system, then served as their bullpen catcher from 1997 through 2004 before becoming a pro scout in 2005.
