The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to extend manager Torey Lovullo through the 2024 season with a one-year contract, per Steve Gilbert at MLB.com.
While no formal announcement has been made by the team, it is expected to be released after the conclusion of their series with the Braves,
Torey Lovullo is currently coaching his seventh season with the Diamondbacks. He began his run in Arizona by taking home NL Manager of the Year honors as he led the Diamondbacks into the playoffs with a 93-win season.
While the Diamondbacks have not seen their way back to the playoffs since, this season has shown lots of promise. With the 1/3 mark passing, Arizona is tied with the Dodgers for the best record in the National League.
Lovullo even commented on his love for Arizona, stating that he would love to stay for the rest of his career, per AZ Sports 98.7:
“I want to stay here for the rest of my life. I love Arizona, I love this community and I bleed Sedona red”
Considering the recent firings of coaches all across the valley, this is a great move by the D-backs as they seek to finally make it back into the postseason.
Stay tuned for further updates.
