Red Sox manager Farrell says he has lymphoma


BOSTON: Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said on Friday (Saturday in Manila) that he has been diagnosed with stage-one lymphoma and will step away from the Major League Baseball squad to begin anti-cancer treatments. Farrell, who guided the Red Sox to the 2013 World Series crown in his first season with Boston, will be replaced as manager for the remainder of the season by assistant coach Torey Lovullo. The Red Sox are 50-64, the worst record in the American League.
