ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have signed John Farrell - not the manager, but the team's 21st-round pick in this year's amateur draft.
The right-handed pitcher from William & Mary is not related to Red Sox manager John Farrell, who was at Tropicana Field on Wednesday for the final game of a three-game series with the Rays.
By the way, the father of the Rays' new prospect is also named John Farrell.
