After a disastrous year with Bobby Valentine at the helm, the Red Sox have brought back their former pitching coach, John Farrell, to take over.Farrell spent a good deal of time in Boston as the pitching coach from 2007-2010. He left the team in the 2011 season to take over as manager of the Toronto Blue Jays.

After interviewing several candidates from around the league, they decided on Farrell, who was at the top of their list since the news about Bobby Valentine being fired came out. Farrell had one more year on his contract to manage Toronto, so Boston will have to compensate the Blue Jays. They will reportedly send infielder Mike Aviles to the Blue Jays in exchange.

No official announcement has been made by Boston, but one is expected on Sunday.
