EVERETT — The Everett AquaSox will have a first-time manager in their upcoming season.

The Seattle Mariners announced Everett’s coaching staff for the 2023 season Wednesday, and Ryan Scott will be making his managerial debut with the Sox, who are the Mariners’ affiliate in the High-A Northwest League.

Scott, 27, is in his second season as a coach in the Mariners organization. Last season he served as a coach with Modesto of the Single-A California League. He spent seven seasons as a minor-league player from 2013-19 as a catcher, first baseman and right fielder, including 2017-18 with the Mariners.

Scott replaces Eric Farris, who spent one season as Everett’s manager. Last season Farris guided the Sox to a 59-72 record and a fifth-place finish in the six-team Northwest League. Earlier this week Farris was named the infield/base-running coach for the Tacoma Rainiers, Seattle’s affiliate in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League.

Scott will be joined in Everett’s dugout by three coaches. Sergio Plasencia will be the Sox’s infield/first-base coach, Cameron Ming will be Everett’s pitching coach and Mike Fransoso will be the Sox’s hitting coach. Ming is the only member of the staff who’s coached in Everett before, as he was an assistant pitching coach last season before being moved to Modesto to serve as pitching coach mid-season.

The rest of the staff includes Drew Weidner as strength and conditioning coach, and Dan Laberry and Stephanie McLain as athletic trainers. All three are new to Everett.

The Sox’s season opens April 7 against the Eugene Emeralds at Funko Field.
