Former All-Star third baseman Mike Lowell has been linked to the possible managerial vacancy in Miami and has also gotten some mentions as an option for Boston, but he told CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman that he’s not ready for such a gig.
“It’s not for me right now,” he said.
Two years into retirement, the 38-year-old Lowell is enjoying time with his family. He does work for MLB Network, but that’s not nearly as consuming as managing would be.
“That’s something that might intrigue me in the future,” Lowell told Heyman. “I like being on the field more than in an office — but it’s just not something I’m ready to do at this point. The time commitment for a manager is greater than it is for a player, which is something people don’t realize. The time isn’t something I’m willing to give up right now.”
