The Red Sox announced Monday that the veteran manager's options for the 2023 and 2024 seasons have been exercised.

He's not only a good manager in regards to in-game decisions and tactics, he also connects very well with the players and consistently maximizes their production.

Cora has managed the Red Sox for three seasons, 2018-19 and 2021. He helped guide the team to 108 wins and a World Series title in 2018. Cora has a 284-202 regular season record and a 17-8 postseason record in this job.
