BOSTON (AP) -- New York Yankees bench coach Tony Pena is the second person to be interviewed as the Red Sox continue to search for Bobby Valentine's replacement.

The former Red Sox catcher and Kansas City Royals manager was interviewed on Monday, an off day in the AL championship series between the Yankees and the Detroit Tigers.

Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach met with the Red Sox last Friday. Former Boston bench coach and current Baltimore Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale and San Diego Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus are expected to be interviewed this week.

Toronto manager John Farrell is believed to be atop the Red Sox list, but they would have to work out compensation with the Blue Jays.

Valentine was fired Oct. 4, one day after Boston ended the season with a 69-93 record.
