BOSTON — New Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora filled out his staff on Wednesday, making Dana LeVangie the pitching coach and adding Ramon Vazquez to the coaching staff.

LeVangie has spent his entire 27-year professional baseball career as a player and staff member in the Red Sox organization. He has been the team’s bullpen coach for the past five seasons.

Vazquez will serve as a liaison between the major league club’s advance scouting and statistical analysis efforts.
