Wallach granted permission to interview with Red Sox.

Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach has been granted permission to interview with the Boston Red Sox for their vacant manager’s job, a source confirmed Wednesday. The story was first reported by the Boston Herald.

Wallach has served as the team’s third-base coach the last two seasons. From 2009-10, he managed the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate. In 2009, he was named the Pacific Coast League manager of the year and Baseball America’s “Best Manager Prospect.”

In 2010, Wallach was reported to be a candidate for the Toronto Blue Jays’ managerial vacancy that ultimately went to John Farrell. That year, he was also considered for the Milwaukee Brewers’ job that went to Ron Roenicke.

The Herald reported that the Red Sox are targeting Farrell and are “believed to be interested in” former Dodgers catcher Brad Ausmus.

Wallach played for the Dodgers for parts of three seasons, from 1993-96, and retired with the Angels in 1996. Wallach’s son, Matt, is a catcher in the Dodgers organization.
