John Farrell interviews for Nationals manager job

John Farrell is a man in demand in the weeks after his firing as Red Sox manager.

The Washington Nationals interviewed Farrell on Friday for their managerial opening, according to Ken Rosenthal of TheAthletic.com just days after Farrell interviewed for the Philadelphia Phillies' vacancy. 

Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez is the front-runner for the Nats job. 

Washington fired Dusty Baker after a 97-win season and Division Series loss to the Cubs. Baker, like Farrell, led his team to back-to-back division titles and first-round playoff exits before he was let go.

Red Sox place Dustin Pedroia on injured list

It's back to the injured list for Dustin Pedroia.

The Red Sox placed the veteran second baseman on the IL on Thursday with left knee irritation. Pedroia left Wednesday night's game vs. the Yankees after his first at-bat due to discomfort in the knee.

Pedroia began the season on the injured list and returned April 9. Since then, the 35-year-old has gone 2-for-20 with a walk.

On the bright side, Pedroia's injury reportedly isn't a serious one and he will rejoin the team in Tampa Bay.

The Red Sox will recall right-hander Marcus Walden from Triple-A Pawtucket to replace Pedroia on the roster.
