Retired Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, according to a major league source, is "close" to agreement on a role within the Sox organization. It is possible that he will head to Florida in the coming days to work with Red Sox minor leaguers taking part in the fall instructional league.
Since Varitek announced his retirement during spring training, the Sox have said that the door would be open for him to have a future in the organization. In July, however, Varitek said that he was not yet ready to consider a post-playing-career job.
"It's still too early for me to make that decision. I still need to get a little of the piss and vinegar of playing out of me, and what's most important is getting my life, my family, being involved in some of the things I had missed and enjoy," he said at the time.
However, it appears that the 40-year-old has reached a point where he is comfortable pursuing his future in the game.
