John Farrell was at Fenway Park once again Friday. A week after announcing he had Stage 1 lymphoma and three days after undergoing his first chemotherapy treatment, he was in full uniform for the Red Sox' team photo. "He's doing well," interim manager Torey Lovullo said. "Obviously a little fatigue as we expected, but he's such a horse and wants to be around and part of this despite that fatigue. It's great to see him. It's great to have him around and it's great to have baseball conversation with him, but the best thing about it is it's great to see him laugh and smile." Lovullo also said he and Farrell met with new president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski on Thursday. "I had a chance to sit down with him yesterday and go over a couple of key guys -- John, myself and Dave," Lovullo said. "Just normal baseball conversation about some of our young players. I think he's just trying to get a feel for our guys through our eyes. That's how it works in baseball. You sit down and try and get as familiar as you possibly can, as quickly as you possibly can. "It was nice to sit down and give our perspective. It was good baseball conversion. It was very typical of what happens in those settings." Dombrowski was officially introduced Wednesday afternoon and is now trying to do his best to learn as much as he can about the current Red Sox players before the season ends to help him with building 2016's team. Lovullo said there wasn't much difference in their thoughts on certain players. "I think it's pretty close," he said. "John and I were able to do most of the talking and filling in a times. Dave gives great baseball perspective. I think he's trying to get as much as he can as fast as he can. We were able to fill in a lot of those gaps."
