Red Sox announced Saturday they have signed manager John Farrell to a contract extension through the 2017 season.
The deal also includes an option for the 2018 season. After bringing a World Series title back to Boston in 2013, Farrell endured a severely disappointing 2014 campaign where they finished in the cellar of the American League East with a 71-91 mark. Feb 21 - 10:29 AM

According to Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area, the Red Sox interviewed Chili Davis for their hitting coach vacancy on Friday.

Davis, who has spent the past three seasons as the hitting coach in Oakland, is attracting a lot of interest this winter. He interviewed for the same position with the Yankees on Thursday, while the Rangers are believed to be interested in his services as well.

The Red Sox announced Friday that hitting coach Greg Colbrunn has "elected not to return to the position."

It's not clear whether Colbrunn truly left on his own or was pushed out. Colbrunn missed six weeks after suffering a brain hemorrhage in June, so it's possible his health was a factor in him leaving. After leading baseball in runs scored in 2013, the Red Sox finished 18th this season.

Red Sox manager John Farrell was ejected from the first inning of Friday's game against the Rays after both benches were issued a warning after David Price plunked David Ortiz.

After the bad blood between the two teams from last weekend, it's understandable why the early warning was issued. Farrell has a right to be upset as well, as Price got to drill his star slugger and his team will be unable to retaliate without repercussions.

John Farrell, Terry Francona and Bob Melvin have been announced by the BBWAA as finalists for the 2013 American League Manager of the Year award.

Melvin is going for his second straight win, though he'll probably wind up finishing third in the voting. The postseason doesn't count when considering the award, but Farrell probably will get the nod, anyway, after leading the Red Sox to the best record in the AL following a last-place finish in 2012.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that the Cubs have not yet asked permission to speak to bench coach Torey Lovullo about their managerial vacancy.

Farrell indicated that his preference would be for the Cubs to wait until the Red Sox season was completed before doing so. He also endorsed his bench coach's candidacy, saying that Lovullo is a great baseball mind, and certainly a manager in waiting.
