Bailey, who has not pitched since April 28th against Houston, was looking to avoid a DL stint before an MRI confirmed that he was suffering from tendinitis in his right bicep. While he is out, Joel Hanrahan will assume the closer role that Bailey had claimed during Hanrahan’s DL stint in late-April.

With five saves, twenty strikeouts, and an ERA of 1.46, he has been one of the most pleasant surprises on the over-achieving Red Sox roster. Although initially slated to be Hanrahan’s setup man, Bailey pitched well enough in Hanrahan’s absence that he was named closer upon Hanrahan’s return last Tuesday. When Bailey comes back next week, it is ass...

Prospect Notebook: The Other Guys From the Hanrahan Trade

Joel Hanrahan was placed on the disabled list in Boston yesterday with right forearm tightness. I’ve pointed out in the past that the Hanrahan trade is looking good, simply because of how Hanrahan’s value has plummeted, Mark Melancon has rebounded to a top reliever, and Stolmy Pimentel has gotten off to a great start in Altoona. The fact that the Pirates got four years of Melancon...
