LeVangie expected to take over as bench coach Monday

BOSTON (AP) Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said the team will make bullpen coach Dana LeVangie the bench coach on Monday.

Lovullo also said Sunday that Triple-A pitching coach Bob Kipper will be moved up from Pawtucket to be the bullpen coach.

Lovullo had been Boston's bench coach. He took over Friday when manager John Farrell said that he had a ''highly curable'' form of cancer and had taken a medical leave for the rest of the season to deal with lymphoma.
