Astros bench coach Alex Cora has been offered and is expected to take the job as the next Red Sox manager, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

It's unclear whether Cora will remain with the Astros if they go to the World Series, or if he'll begin his new job with the Red Sox right away. Rosenthal reported that Cora will get a three-year contract. The Nationals - who fired Dusty Baker on Friday - are "not in the picture" and Cora will be be hired after the Astros are finished with their playoff run. Cora was first to speak with Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski on Sunday in NY during an off-day in the ALCS presented by Camping World. Gardenhire, the longtime Minnesota Twins manager, was the third known candidate to interview for the Red Sox opening.
