The Red Sox bullpen seemed to be in pretty good shape so far this season, until closers Andrew Bailey and Joel Hanrahan were both placed on the disabled list on Monday.
Right-hander Junichi Tazawa will close games until either Bailey or Hanrahan is healthy enough to return. The shakeup in the back of the bullpen has had an effect on the starting rotation as well. Fourth starter Felix Doubront has experience as a reliever, and was moved to the bullpen on Tuesday.
Allen Webster got the start Tuesday in place of Doubront, and if he does well, Webster has the opportunity to change the Red Sox’ conversation about sending him back down to Triple-A Pawtucket.
