Third-Base Coach Brian Butterfield Moves to Red Sox With Farrell

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- New Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell has hired Brian Butterfield from his Toronto Blue Jays staff to coach third base, the Red Sox said in a news release.

Butterfield, 54, who previously coached with the New York Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks, spent the past 11 of his 34 seasons as a player, coach and manager with the Blue Jays. He was Toronto’s third-base coach the past three seasons, two of them under Farrell.

Butterfield, a second baseman who was signed by the Yankees in 1979, spent five seasons as a player in the minor leagues and never made a Major League Baseball team roster.

He then got into coaching and later managed parts of six minor-league seasons in the Yankees’ system, compiling a 300-293 mark.

He is the son of the late Jack Butterfield, who worked as the Yankees’ vice president of player development and scouting.
