John Farrell Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell "has surfaced as a possible managerial candidate for the Blue Jays," Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports .

However, Elliott writes he doesn't know if Farrell has been interviewed.

Farrell, 48, has served as Terry Francona's pitching coach since 2006.

The Jays could interview as many as 15 candidates, it has been reported.

Former big-league managers Don Baylor, Eric Wedge and Bob Melvin have been interviewed.

Elliott's had fun throwing out names for the Blue Jays' job the last couple of days, throwing out Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin's name on Monday. I talked to Mackanin on Sunday and he said he hasn't gotten any calls from teams yet, and hasn't heard about any team hoping to interview him. Mackanin, a former interim manager in Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, would be a good choice for any team, but would certainly fit in Toronto. A former Expos infielder, Mackanin's wife is Canadian.
