The SportsXchange

Boston Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar will interview for the Astros' managerial job on Wednesday, multiple media outlets reported.

Bogar is the fifth person known to interview for the Astros managerial post, which is being held on an interim basis by Tony DeFrancesco

Former Padres and Phillies manager Larry Bowa, Nationals third-base coach Bo Porter, Rays bench coach Dave Martinez and DeFrancesco have also interviewed.

However, Bowa is no longer a candidate. He told Fox Sports that he and Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow agreed the Astros' position is a younger man's job.

Bogar has been on the Red Sox's staff since the 2009 season and is a former manager in the Astros' Minor League system.
