John Farrell to Return as Boston Red Sox Manager After Cancer Treatment


BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox say manager John Farrell's cancer is in remission.

Boston said Farrell had his post-treatment testing and learned on Thursday that his non-Hodgkins lymphoma was in remission.

Farrell says he's thankful for the support he's received. Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski says the team looks forward to having him back.

Farrell was diagnosed with cancer in August and missed the last six weeks of the season. Bench coach Torey Lovullo took over for him temporarily. The Red Sox went 28-20 under Lovullo but couldn't avoid their third last-place finish in four seasons.

Of course, the other year was the 2013 World Series championship.
