BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Red Sox have been granted permission to speak with Texas Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux about their managerial vacancy, WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche has confirmed.

Maddux helped transform the Rangers  pitching staff into one of the best in the majors over the last two seasons. He joined the Rangers in 2008 after spending six seasons as the pitching coach of the Milwaukee Brewers.

A former player, Maddux enjoyed a 15-year MLB career. He pitched for eight teams, including the Red Sox in 1995 and 96. In his two seasons in Boston, Maddux went 7-3 with a 3.97 ERA over 59 games, 11 of them starts.

In his career, Maddux was 39-37 with a 4.05 ERA. He is the older brother of future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux.

So far, the Red Sox have interviewed Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum for their opening at manager.

Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs have also asked permission to speak with Maddux.

The Red Sox have also been granted permission to speak with Cleveland Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr.

No dates have been arranged for either interview.
