Sox officially name Lovullo bench coach

The Boston Red Sox, as expected, named Torey Lovullo as manager John Farrell’s bench coach on Friday.

Tim Bogar, who held that position with the Red Sox last season, was told Thursday he would not be retained by the team.

The 47-year-old Lovullo, who managed with the Red Sox at Triple-A Pawtucket in 2010, had joined Farrell in Toronto as his first base coach when Farrell took the managerial job there.
