As expected, the Red Sox on Thursday named Jason Varitek as special assistant to general manager Ben Cherington.
Jason was one of the most respected players of his era and will be a key voice as we move forward, said Cherington. He will be involved in a number of areas including Major League personnel decisions, evaluations, and mentorship and instruction of young players. We are fortunate to have him in this role.
