Red Sox bring in ex-Tigers boss Dombrowski to run club
BOSTON (AP) New team president Dave Dombrowski says he'll talk to Red Sox manager John Farrell after he gets healthy again.
Farrell was diagnosed with a treatable form of cancer last week. He began chemotherapy on Tuesday - the same day Dombrowski was hired to take over the rebuilding of the club that's headed for its third last-place finish in four years.
Dombrowski says the most important thing is that Farrell takes care of his health. Then they can worry about getting together.
Dombrowski was introduced at a news conference at Fenway Park on Wednesday. He says he plans to hire a general manager to replace Ben Cherington, who declined the offer to stay in a diminished role.
