Diamondbacks extend Torey Lovullo’s contract through 2024 season

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks extended manager Torey Lovullo’s contract through the 2024 season.
The deal is the third straight one-year extension for the longest-tenured manager in team history.
Lovullo is 446-483 in seven seasons, with one playoff appearance.
Lovullo led the Diamondbacks to the 2017 National League division series his first season and a winning record the next two. Arizona general manager Mike Hazen stuck with Lovullo after an injury-filled 110-loss season in 2021 and the Diamondbacks have enjoyed a resurgence this year.
The Diamondbacks enter against Atlanta 35-24, tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in the NL.
