Boston Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia takes off his gloves after lining out to right field to end the sixth inning of the home opener baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Boston. Re

During the press conference the team held today, Chaim Bloom explained the team used the "interim" tag on Roenicke's hiring out of respect to the ongoing Major League Baseball investigation on the Red Sox sign-stealing allegations.

But the Red Sox decided not to wait for the results of the investigation, instead deciding to part ways with Cora in mid-January based on MLB's report on the Astros.

The Red Sox meant to wait until the report was released to name Cora's replacement, but announced this week that bench coach Ron Roenicke would take over as interim manager after it was made clear that the report would not be finished by the time full-squad spring training workouts began.

The move comes one day before the Red Sox's first scheduled workout for pitchers and catchers. Once the league completes its probe, Roenicke could become the permanent manager.

The 63-year-old Roenicke arrived in Boston with Cora before the 2018 season, serving as bench coach.

Michael Bloomberg's meme campaign is becoming its own meme
It used to be clearer what's an ad and what isn't - and thus what's subject to disclosures and other rules. The candidate then sent a photo of him wearing baggy chino shorts, an orange polo and a zip-up vest.

Boston entered spring training without a skipper.

"After talking through it as an organization, we felt that naming Ron our interim manager was the best way to respect the investigation that's ongoing into our 2018 club", Bloom told reporters while seated next to Roenicke at the announcement.

Roenicke was the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers from 2011-2015.

"We are confident that Ron will hit the ground running, and we're excited to work closely with him as he leads our group forward".
