Red Sox manager search on

Sandy Alomar Jr. is a coach with the Indians.

The Red Sox’s search for a new manager continued yesterday, with Indians coach Sandy Alomar Jr. interviewing at Fenway Park. 

Alomar is the third managerial prospect to formally interview in Boston.

He was supposed to be the fourth, but Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux suddenly withdrew his name from consideration with the Sox, citing the distance between Boston and his Texas home and the potential impact on his family.

Of course, the next guy up probably won’t have that particular problem.

Following Alomar on the interview schedule is Torey Lovullo, who was the manager at Triple-A Pawtucket in 2010. The Blue Jays’ first base coach under John Farrell this past season, Lovullo will interview for the job tomorrow.

Following him is Gene Lamont, the only candidate thus far with previous MLB managerial experience, having led the White Sox (1992-95) and Pirates (1997-00).

Lamont also has a Red Sox connection, although a somewhat dubious one, having served as third base coach on the 2001 team that had clubhouse dysfunction on par with the 2011 trainwreck.

Alomar, Lovullo and Lamont join Pete Mackanin and Dale Sveum as official interviewees.

Lovullo has been close to landing a manager’s job twice, with the Dodgers  and Indians.
