The Blue Jays appeared to slam the door on allowing John Farrell to leave for the Red Sox Tuesday morning.

Team president Paul Beeston and general manager Alex Anthopoulos released a statement that said: "Due to the distraction caused by media speculation regarding our employee permission policy, the Toronto Blue Jays have amended their policy and will not grant permission for lateral moves."

Farrell leaving the manager's job in Toronto for the manager's job in Boston is a lateral move.
