According to a baseball source, former Angels shortstop, and Billerica native, Gary DiScarcina will be named the manager for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox.
DiSarcina had been working in the Angels' front office after spending three seasons as manager of the Red Sox' short-season Single-A club in Lowell, and one year (2010) as the Sox' minor-league infield coordinator. Current Red Sox players Will Middlebrooks and Ryan Kalish are among those who highly-complimentary of DiSarcina, having played for him as members of the Spinners. (For an example of DiSarcina's work, see Alex Speier's column on Middlebrook's progression through the Red Sox' system.) 
DiSarcina, who also served as the third-base coach for Italy in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, will replace Arnie Beyeler. Beyeler was promoted to the Red Sox' big league club as its first-base coach.
The 45-year-old finished his 12-year major league carer in 2001, having spent his entire time in the big leagues with the Angels.
DiSarcina was a sixth-round pick of the Angels in 1988 amateur draft after playing collegiately for the University of Massachusetts.
Comcast SportsNet New England's Maureen Mullen was first to report the hiring.
