MLB - Scoop Du Jour

John Farrell spent 10 seasons pitching in the majors for the Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers. And he's been the pitching coach for the Boston Red Sox since 2006.

Now it appears that he'll be adding another team to his resume. Peter Gammons heard from three MLB execs that the 48-year-old father of three will be the next manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. He's never managed in the bigs or the minors, but he's extremely in tune with everything that's going on in the American League East.

If true, Farrell will have beaten out his fellow Red Sox employee, bench coach DeMarlo Hale, along with Cleveland Indians first-base coach Sandy Alomar Jr., New York Yankees third-base coach Rob Thomson, and Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Dave Martinez.
