After leading the Red Sox to the AL Championship Series, the Red Sox have exercised Alex Cora’s option for two more seasons, keeping him under contract until 2024. He led the team to the AL Championship Series after returning from his one-year sign-stealing suspension.

In Cora’s three seasons as a manager, he is 284-202. He was also a former infielder of Boston’s 2007 World Series Championship team. 

After Cora’s cheating incident with the Houston Astros in 2017, he was let go in 2020. 

In his first season as the Red Sox manager, the Red Sox racked up 108 victories and won the World Series in 2018. 

Cora expressed his appreciation for being able to manage the club again. 

“I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to manage the Red Sox,” Cora said. “We experienced so many special moments as a team and as a city in 2021, but we still have unfinished business to take care of.”
