Jason Varitek Visits Portland Sea Dogs to Observe Red Sox’ Prospects in Action (Photo)

During his playing days, Jason Varitek was known to have an incredibly high baseball acumen. Now he’s sharing that knowledge with the Red Sox front office.

After years of toiling behind the dish for the Boston, Varitek now works as a special assistant to general manager Ben Cherington. His duties seem to vary, with no one set role, and on Wednesday and Thursday, Varitek was visiting the Portland Sea Dogs. Though he was seen in uniform, the Portland Press Herald reports that Varitek was there mostly as an observer for two Sea Dogs workouts and games.

Check out the captain back in a Red Sox uniform in the image below.
