Diamondbacks Reward Manager

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been playing well over .500 ball for the past two months, and today they rewarded their manager, Torey Lovullo. 

The team has announced that they are picking up their 2023 option on Lovullo. The manager is in his 6th season at the helm of the D-Backs, and has led them to a decent resurgence this season as they reestablish themselves after a dreadful 2021. After finishing just one short of a franchise-record with 110 losses last year, against just 52 wins, they've already surpassed that win total by eight (60-67), with over a month to play. 

The 56-year-old Lovullo had a better-than-.500 record in his first three years with the club (2017-2019).  

The announcement comes less than 24 hours after the Snakes made team history against the Philadelphia Phillies last night.

Arizona was down 7-0 early to the Phillies, before coming back with 13 unanswered runs to win 13-7, the biggest comeback in club history.

Congrats to Lovullo, who will continue to oversee the team's resurgence.
