This is a daily BSJ off-season feature that will arrive in time for your lunch, Monday-Friday.

A spin around the leagues with the latest news, notes, and rumors around Major League Baseball:

RED SOX:

John Farrell has emerged from exile.

Farrell is making the rounds today at MLB Network, appearing on three different shows throughout the day.

It's an interesting choice by Farrell, who has not spoken at all since his firing almost two months ago. Farrell has maintained an extremely low profile since the move, not commenting publicly at all -- until today.
