EVERETT — Ryan Scott is returning as the Everett AquaSox’s manager.

The Seattle Mariners, who are Everett’s parent team, announced the Sox’s staff for the 2024 season Wednesday, and Scott is back for a second go-around with Seattle’s High-A affiliate in the Northwest League.

Last season was Scott’s first as a professional manager, when at 27 years old he was barely older than the players in his charge. He guided the Sox to a 74-58 record and a spot in the Northwest League championship series, where Everett was defeated by the Vancouver Canadians.

“I’m extremely excited to be back in Everett this season and look forward to being back in the PNW,” Scott said in a press release. “We are going to have a fantastic staff this year and we all look forward to helping our players compete and get better every day and ultimately try to win a NWL championship.”

Scott has three other staff members returning with him this season. Sergio Plasencia will serve as the team’s bench coach after serving as the infield/first-base coach in 2023; Cameron Ming returns as pitching coach; and Stephanie McLain returns as the team’s athletic trainer.

Everett will have two new staff members. Seth Mejias-Brean will serve as hitting coach after having the same role for Single-A Modesto of the California League last year. Jose Alcantara Beas will be the strength and conditioning coach after being with Modesto each of the past two seasons.

Everett’s season opens on the road on April 6 against the Hillsboro Hops. The Sox’s home opener is April 9 against the Eugene Emeralds.
