The Red Sox announced Tuesday that Dana Levangie has been named the team’s new bullpen coach. Levangie replaces Gary Tuck, who retired last week after six seasons with the organization. Levangie, 43, has spent the past seven seasons serving as a major league advance scout with the Red Sox, and he also will continue to assist in advance scouting going forward. This isn’t the first time Levangie will head out to the bullpen. He served as Boston’s bullpen catcher for eight years from 1997 through the 2004 World Series campaign. Levangie has spent 22 seasons total in professional baseball, all of which have come with the Red Sox. “We are extremely pleased to add Dana to the major league staff,” manager John Farrell said, according to a press release. “He has been a valuable asset to the Red Sox in a variety of roles and his vast knowledge of the major leagues, particularly the American League, will enable him to make an impact on our staff and with our bullpen.” Levangie bounced around the Red Sox’ farm system for six seasons as a catcher after being drafted in the 14th round in 1991. The Whitman, Mass., native is a graduate of Whitman-Hanson High School, and he also attended both Cape Cod Community College and American International College. Levangie’s hiring completes the Red Sox’ 2013 major league coaching staff. Have a question for Ricky Doyle? Send it to him via Twitter at @TheRickyDoyle or send it here.
