The Boston Red Sox have fired manager John Farrell after they previously exercised its 2018 club option on the skipper.

Farrell took over in Boston after the 2012 season and led Boston to a 97-win campaign in 2013 that was capped off by a World Series championship.

While the regular seasons have been successful for the Red Sox they have been he victims of early playoff exits, which is the main factor in the team’s decision to let Farrell go.
