In the least surprising move since John Farrell was named manager, Torey Lovullo has joined the Red Sox as bench coach, according to a joint announcement from Ben Cherington and John Farrell.
Lovullo of course was Farrell's first-base coach in Toronto, and before that was the Pawtucket manager, so he has long ties to this organization.
But did you know that he has a 1.167 career OPS against Kevin Brown? Or that he played for seven teams in eight years? Or that his agent's name was Dennis Gilbert? Or that it's not that hard for me to look around Baseball-Reference and cherry-pick random facts?
Welcome back, Torey.
