The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Thursday that they have extended manager Torey Lovullo's contract by one year, through the 2022 season.
The Diamondbacks also hold a club option for the 2023 season, according to multiple reports.
Lovullo's extension comes with the Diamondbacks in last place in the National League West with a record of 48-104 entering Thursday's game against the Atlanta Braves.
Lovullo, 56, has been Arizona's manager since 2017 and has a record of 333-365 in five seasons. He had posted three straight consecutive winning seasons before Arizona finished 25-35 in the 2020 pandemic-shortened season.
His best season came in 2017 when he led the Diamondbacks to a 93-69 record (second place in the NL West) and a wild-card victory over the Colorado Rockies before Arizona was swept in the NL Division Series by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
