CLEVELAND (AP) John Farrell was forced to step away from the Red Sox because of cancer. He will return as their manager in 2016, an announcement that ends Boston's second straight troubling season on an uplifting note.

The club said Sunday that Farrell, who recently completed his final course of chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, will be back next season.

Boston announced Farrell's return before Sunday's season finale against Cleveland. The 53-year-old left the Red Sox on Aug. 14 after being diagnosed with stage 1 lymphoma, detected when he had surgery to repair a hernia.
