Red Sox coaches John Farrell, DeMarlo Hale finalists for Blue Jays job

10.20.10 at 1:14 pm ET

According to industry sources, both Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale and pitching coach John Farrell are among the three finalists in line for the Blue Jays’ managerial position. According to a source, the other candidate is former major league catcher Sandy Alomar Jr., who has most recently served as the first-base coach for the Cleveland Indians. Farrell first talked to the Jays in the week immediately following the regular season, while Hale met with Toronto the following week. Hale has experience managing in the minor leagues, while neither Farrell or Alomar Jr. have held any managerial jobs. Toronto is expected to finalize its search by next week.

CSNNE.com first reported the list of finalists. For more Red Sox coverage, see the team page at weei.com/redsox.
