BOSTON — According to a WEEI.com report, the Red Sox have named Brian Butterfield as their new third base coach, joining new manager John Farrell’s staff in Boston. Butterfield had been part of the Toronto Blue Jays since the 2002 season, serving under five managers in the process – Buck Martinez, Carlos Tosca, John Gibbons, Cito Gaston, and John Farrell.

The 54-year-old native of Bangor, Maine still resides in Maine during the off-season and is an “avid New England Patriots fan,” according to the report.

As a whole, Butterfield has been in professional baseball for 34 years, 16 of those at the Major League level. He managed in the New York Yankees’ farm system and then afterwards joined the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, where he served as their third base coach from 1998-2000.

He adds another piece to the new-look Red Sox coaching staff that is taking shape under Farrell.
