After a highly successful season in which he brought his team to within two wins of their second straight Governors' Cup, others took notice as well with Baseball America bestowing upon the former PawSox skipper the honor of Minor League Manager of the Year.
In his lone season at the helm of the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate, DiSarcina led the PawSox to an International League North title with an 80-63 record and their third straight postseason appearance.
DiSarcina saw the likes of 64 players walk through his clubhouse last season, including Brandon Workman, Xander Bogaerts and Jose Iglesias.
Prior to his stint in Pawtucket, DiSarcina served as manager of the Lowell Spinners (2007-2009), a roving field instructor in the Red Sox farm system (2010) and was a special assistant to Los Angeles Angels GM Jerry Dipoto (2011-2012). He also collected 966 hits over 12 seasons with the Angels and was named to the American League All-Star team in 1995.
A native of Billerica, DiSarcina returned to the Angels in November to become the team's third base coach.
