The Boston Red Sox plan to interview Torey Lovullo and Gene Lamont for their managerial opening.   

They team said Tuesday they will be interviewed this week along with Cleveland bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., whose interview Wednesday was announced earlier.   

Terry Francona left as manager two days after the regular season ended.   

Lovullo, who will be interviewed Friday, managed the Red Sox triple-A team at Pawtucket in 2010 and was first base coach this year for the Toronto Blue Jays.   

Lamont, third base coach of the Detroit Tigers since 2006, had that job with Boston in 2001. He managed the Chicago White Sox from 1992-95 and Pittsburgh Pirates from 1997-2000.   

The Red Sox already have interviewed Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum.
