The success of the Red Sox could advance the career of bench coach Torey Lovullo. The Cubs are considering him for an interview according to reports out of Chicago.

Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein has a history with Lovullo. When Epstein was the general manager of the Red Sox, he hired Lovullo to manage Triple A Pawtucket in 2010.

To me, hes a manager in waiting, Farrell said. I think hes going to have opportunities until he ends up securing one of the jobs. Hes been integral to the success that weve had here. Hes a great baseball mind. The conversations and the feedback and just the insights that he gives; hes going to be very good. Hes going to be very good.

The Cubs have not yet officially contacted the Red Sox. While Lovullo could theoretically interview on a day off, Farrell hopes the process would wait until the season is over.

Wed like everyone to remain focused on what we have here first, this being the priority, Farrell said. We dont want to get in the way of potential opportunities for someone, either. Hopefully if those requests come in that they would be sensitive to what were going through as well.
