BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Red Sox are down to three candidates to full their empty managerial position, general manager Ben Cherington announced Monday.

The Red Sox choices are down to Bobby Valentine, who interviewed on Monday, Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont and Blue Jays first base coach Torey Lovullo.

Cherington said Cleveland bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. is out of the running for the job.

“I had a talk with Sandy this weekend and told him how much I think of him, and that I think he’s going to be a really good major league manger one day, but that he wasn’t going to be the choice for us in 2012,” said Cherington after Bobby Valentine’s media availability on Monday.

Cherington noted both Lamont will be in later this week for his second interview, while one has not been scheduled for Lovullo.

Cherington also said there is a chance additional candidates will be brought in.
