BOSTON — Torey Lovullo arrived Friday at Fenway Park to interview for the job as Boston Red Sox manager.

Lovullo was the fourth person to interview for the job that opened when the team parted ways with Terry Francona, who admitted losing the clubhouse during the September collapse. Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum, Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Indians coach Sandy Alomar Jr. have been in to discuss the job; former Pirates and White Sox manager Gene Lamont is scheduled for today.

A second baseman, Lovullo played 303 games over eight years with the Tigers, Yankees, Angels, Mariners, A’s, Indians and Phillies; he also played in Latin America and Japan.

“I’ve seen a lot; I feel like I’m very diverse in many areas,” said Lovullo, who was the first- base coach in Toronto last season. “I was very excited to get to that level as a staff member.”

Lovullo also has managed in the minor leagues, including the Red Sox’s Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket, R.I. When he was hired, the team’s head of amateur scouting and player development, Mike Hazen, told him he was effectively the 31st major league manager.

“It made a lot of sense because I was exposed to many of you, exposed to the Red Sox Nation, and it’s real,” Lovullo said. “You don’t know exactly what it’s like until you’re a part of it. It’s a pretty spectacular place. Does that give me a leg up on the competition? I’m not certain. I feel very comfortable with the surroundings, the people and their concepts, and I’m fortunate for that.”
