According to a report on ESPNBoston.com, talks between the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox in regards to manager John Farrell continued on Friday.

The source cited in the ESPN report claims that the Jays would be looking for a player or players of "substantial value".

The Boston Globe had tweeted on Thursday that talks between the Red Sox and Blue Jays for Farrell were progressing.

Globe writer Nick Cafardo wrote on his Twitter account @nickcafardo Thursday that a Major League source told him that both teams are 'beyond the "preliminary" stage of compensation talks.

Even prior to the firing of manager Bobby Valentine, speculation was that Farrell was at the top of Boston's list to take over the clubhouse. The club has since interviewed Brad Ausmus, DeMarlo Hale, Tony Pena and Tim Wallach for their vacancy.

Farrell, who has one year left in his contract with the Blue Jays, served as pitching coach for the Red Sox from 2007 to 2010 before being hired to his first managerial job in Toronto.

He guided the Jays to a 73-89 record in his second season at the helm.
