Quick Hits: Red Sox, Giants, Lovullo, Angels

The Boston Red Sox were previously interested in former Marlins president of baseball operations, Michael Hill, to lead their baseball operations department. However, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, Hill has “no interest” in leaving his role as MLB’s senior vice president of on-field operations to work in a front office again. Hill joins Jon Daniels and Mike Hazen as potential candidates who have declined to be interviewed for the position.

Nightengale also reports that the Red Sox have interviewed assistant GM Eddie Romero for the position. However, the favorite to replace Chaim Bloom as the club’s chief baseball officer could be Phillies GM Sam Fuld. It is uncertain if Fuld has been interviewed for the role, as he is currently under contract with the Phillies until 2025. The Red Sox would need permission from the Phillies to interview Fuld. Organizations typically do not hinder personnel from pursuing potential promotions, and Fuld currently serves as the second-in-command to president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, who previously led the Red Sox from 2015 to 2019.

Other news around the league…

  • The Diamondbacks are expected to offer manager Torey Lovullo a multi-year contract extension this offseason, according to Nightengale. This comes as no surprise, considering Hazen recently indicated that the club could retain Lovullo beyond the 2024 season if Arizona made the postseason. The DBacks have indeed made it to the NLCS after sweeping the Brewers and the Dodgers in the Wild Card and NLDS, respectively.
  • FanSided’s Robert Murray tweeted that Giants bench coach and interim manager Kai Correa has been interviewed for the club’s vacant manager position. Correa and third-base coach Mark Hallberg are the only known candidates for the job. Correa, 35, began his coaching career after graduating from college in 2010. He has coached at the University of Puget Sound and the University of Northern Colorado before joining the Giants ahead of the 2020 season as a bench coach.
  • The New York Post’s Jon Heyman recently mentioned that the Angels, who have shown mutual interest in Buck Showalter for their managerial vacancy, are seeking a veteran manager for the 2024 season. Alongside Showalter, Heyman suggests Darin Erstad as another candidate. Erstad played for the Angels for 11 seasons and later served as the head coach for the University of Nebraska.
