Indians Update: Alomar Jr. Out Of Red Sox Manager Race

Cleveland Indians bench coach and former star catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. interviewed for the manager position with the Boston Red Sox on Nov. 9, but he is no longer in the running to become the Red Sox manager.

Instead, the Red Sox have focused their attention on three other candidates: former Chicago White Sox manager and current Detroit Tigers third-base coach Gene Lamont, Toronto Blue Jays third base coach Torey Lovullo and the frontrunner -- Bobby Valentine, who most recently managed in Japan from 2004-2009, prior to which he managed the New York Mets and Texas Rangers.

Although Valentine has not managed in MLB since 2002, Alomar, although respected around the game, has never managed at all, which was of course working against him throughout the hiring process.

Alomar also interviewed for the Chicago Cubs manager position, but the Cubs have since tabbed former Milwaukee Brewers pitching coach Dale Sveum as manager, so it looks like Alomar Jr. will be staying on Cleveland's bench for the time being.
