John Farrell In Japan To Manage MLB All-Stars

Red Sox manager John Farrell is in Osaka, Japan to manage a squad of 29 MLB All-Stars in a five-game series against their Japanese League rivals. While Farrell's roster is indeed star-studded (although no Red Sox players made the trip), really big deals like Bryce Harper, Albert Pujols and Adam Jones pulled out of the exhibition series. Farrell stated that he's looking forward to seeing Japanese pitching sensation Shohei Otani, a 20-year old righty who hurls for the wonderfully-named Nippon Ham Fighters.
