Torey Lovullo, turned away twice for promotions by the Indians this off-season, has been named Boston’s new Class AAA manager at Pawtucket. It’s believed Joel Skinner and Mike Sarbaugh are the leading candidates to replace Lovullo at Class AAA Columbus next season.
Lovullo was a finalist to replace manager Eric Wedge, but the job went to Manny Acta. Lovullo was then a candidate to be the infield coach/third base coach on Acta’s staff, but the job went to Steve Smith.

Torey Lovullo, the Indians Class AAA manager, was hit above the left eye with a broken bat during Sunday’s game against Colorado. It took nine stitches to close the cut.
Lovullo, who will manage the Columbus Clippers this year, reported to practice Monday morning.
The maple bat belonged to Indians outfielder Trevor Crowe. The broken bat sailed over the Indians dugout, hit a screen behind it and hit Lovullo when it bounced back into the dugout.
Bart Swain, Indians director of media relations, said the injury may have been more serious, but Lovullo’s sunglasses protected his eye.
