BOSTON -- The Red Sox today completed their 2007 group of minor league managers with the appointment of Jon Deeble at Single-A Lowell in the New York Penn League.

Boston Director of Player Development Mike Hazen also announced the complete 2007 field staffs for the Red Sox' six minor league affiliates.

Deeble, Boston's Coordinator of Pacific Rim Scouting, will again add managing responsibilities in the Red Sox system. He previously managed Lowell to a 39-34 record in 2003. Deeble has served as the manager of the Australian national team since 2000. That has included guiding Australia in the 2006 World Baseball Classic and in each of the last two Summer Olympic Games, winning a Silver Medal in 2004 at Athens. He will manage the Australian Olympic team again in 2008. Deeble joined the Red Sox in 2002 after compiling a 133-121 record in four seasons as a manager in the Florida Marlins organization.

Deeble will be joined at Lowell by pitching coach Ace Adams, who performed those duties at Double-A Portland in 2006, and hitting coach Alan Mauthe, who returns to Lowell for a second season.

Bruce Crabbe, who managed Lowell in 2006, will concentrate exclusively on his duties as Boston's Minor League Infield Coordinator in 2007 after holding both positions last season. The Red Sox also made several other adjustments in pitching coaches for 2007, shifting Mike Cather from Wilmington/Lancaster to Portland, Bob Kipper from Greenville to Wilmington/Lancaster, and Walter Miranda from Lowell to Greenville.
