Red Sox name Lovullo bench coach under Farrell

The team made the announcement on Friday, six days after Farrell was named manager after the Red Sox went 69-93 in their only season under Bobby Valentine, who was fired the day after it ended.

Lovullo, 47 was Toronto’s first base coach the past two seasons when Farrell managed the Blue Jays. In 2010, Lovullo was manager of Boston’s Triple-A team at Pawtucket. Before that, he managed from 2002-09 in the Cleveland system. Farrell was director of player development for the Indians from 2002-06.

Lovullo is the first coach named by Boston since Farrell was hired. He succeeds Tim Bogar, who spent four seasons as a Red Sox coach, the last as bench coach.
