Report: Second suspect in David Ortiz shooting apprehended

The second suspect in the shooting of David Ortiz reportedly has been apprehended.

Ramon D. Carmona, a Dominican television producer and a friend of Ortiz's, wrote on Twitter that the alleged shooter has been captured.

The tweet translates to, "Exclusive photo of the capture of the alleged shooter who shot @davidortiz ... the individual was accompanied by several men, supposedly from the same gang."

No further details on the second suspect have been released. The first suspect, Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, was arrested immediately following the shooting and will officially be charged with being an accomplice to attempted murder.

Ortiz, who underwent his second surgery in Boston on Monday night, remains in intensive care at Mass General. On Tuesday, he reportedly took his first steps since the surgery and spoke with loved ones.

Report: Red Sox hire new assistant hitting coach

Report: Red Sox hire new assistant hitting coach

Three weeks after parting ways with Andy Barkett, the Boston Red Sox reportedly have their new assistant hitting coach.

The team has hired Peter Fatse as Barkett's replacement according to Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage. Fatse, who hails from Wilbraham, Mass., served as the minor league hitting coordinator for the Minnesota Twins in 2019.

Fatse will assist Sox hitting coach Tim Hyers.

His hiring kicks off what's set to be an active offseason for the Red Sox following an underwhelming campaign in which they finished 84-78 and failed to clinch a playoff berth. Boston's remaining openings include pitching coach, assistant pitching coach, and general manager.

MLB Rumors: Red Sox have spoken to former Reds manager Bryan Price for pitching coach opening

MLB Rumors: Red Sox have spoken to former Reds manager Bryan Price for pitching coach opening

As the Red Sox look to fill its pitching coach opening vacated by Dana LeVangie, they appear to be looking into former Reds manager Bryan Price. 

Price replaced Dusty Baker as the Reds manager in 2014 and went 279-387 before he was fired after the start of the 2018 season. 

Before that, Price served as pitching coach for the Mariners from 2001-2006, winning the Pitching Coach of the Year award in 2001. He then joined the Diamondbacks staff at the same position until 2009 and joined as pitching coach for the Reds following the '09 season. 

Price certainly has an accomplished background as a pitching coach, even though his time as manager yielded a few rants directed at reporters and umpires. If he can help right the ship for the Red Sox pitching staff, a crew that probably deserves most of the blame for Boston's demise in 2019, then I'm sure Red Sox fans will be all for it.
