According to multiple major league sources, Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo will interview with the Texas Rangers for their vacant managerial position. Lovullo recently interviewed with the same role with the Houston Astros, who ultimately gave the job to A.J. Hinch. The 49-year-old Lovullo has also previously interviewed for managing jobs with the Dodgers, Indians and Red Sox. The former major league infielder began his managing career in the Cleveland organization, where he served at a variety of levels from 2002-09. He spent one season as the skipper for the Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket in '10 before joining John Farrell in Toronto as the Blue Jays' first base coach. Also in consideration for the Texas job is former Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar, who went 14-8 as the Rangers' interim manager after Ron Washington stepped down due to personal reasons.
