John Farrell, Manager, Boston Red Sox
John Farrell’s fifth season at the helm of the Boston Red Sox has been a good one. Heading into Sunday, the Red Sox have an 84-63 record and have clinched the American League East division title. Although he isn’t a player in the MLB, Farrell pitched in 116 major league games in his career. Before that, he played baseball at Oklahoma State from 1981-84. The Red Sox are looked at as potential contenders to win the World Series.
Tim Arakawa, 2B, Mobile BayBears (Los Angeles Angels)
Tim Arakawa, a former second basemen for the Cowboys, held his own during his first full season in the minor leagues. Arakawa finished the season hitting .245 for Mobile with four home runs and 15 RBIs. A staple at the top of the lineup, Arakawa finished with a .345 OBP and eight stolen bases.
Jon Perrin, Pitcher, Biloxi Shuckers (Milwaukee Brewers)
Perrin, a former successful starting pitcher for the Cowboys, was stellar this summer at the Double-A level. He finished the season 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA, throwing 105.1 innings for Biloxi. Perrin had only 21 walks while striking out 91. Perrin never made his way into the Triple-A ranks, but if he continues at the pace he’s at, he will be there early next summer.
