The Red Sox have added two names to the list of interviewees for their vacant managerial position, and both of them have Red Sox connections.

According to WEEI.com, the Sox will interview Yankees bench coach Tony Pena -- who was the team's regular catcher from 1990-93 -- today. Pena, whose son Tony Pena Jr. pitches for the Pawtucket Red Sox, managed the Kansas City Royals from 2002-05.

Later this week, the Sox will also interview Orioles third-base coach DeMarlo Hale, who was a member of their coaching staff from 2006-11. Hale was a minor-leaguer in the Red Sox' organization in the 1980s and managed in the Sox' farm system from 1993-99.

The Sox interviewed Dodgers third-base coach Tim Wallach last Friday, and is expected to speak with Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus this week.
