MLB Injury News:
There was initially fear that Boston Red Sox right-handed
starting pitcher John Lackey had sustained a tear in his injured biceps.
However, manager John Farrell told reporters – including Brian MacPherson of
the Providence Journal – that a recent MRI showed no signs of a tear, adding that
Lackey will not yet require a stint on the disabled list.
Farrell on Lackey: "The MRI showed some inflammation in the bicep. That's been it. ... There has not been any indication of a tear."
— Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp) April 8, 2013
While the MRI did show signs of inflammation in the injured
area, the tear was not seen. This will allow Lackey to avoid a trip to the DL,
for the time being.
Lackey exited Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Indians
after suffering his biceps injury. The Red Sox won’t need to use him until
Sunday, so he will have until then to show that he’s healthy enough to maintain
his spot in the team’s rotation. If he’s unable to do so, Boston will place him
on the DL and move forward with another starter – perhaps someone like Alfredo Aceves.

The John Lackey Road to Redemption tour looked like it was going to end before it even got started as the right hander left the game in agony after throwing a wild pitch to Jose Reyes on Saturday. It was a damn shame too since he was looking pretty sharp out there, (except for the meatball he gave to JP Arencibia). But the injury isn't as bad as it looked. From WEEI's Alex...
John Lackey has been diagnosed with a mid-biceps strain and will likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list. The injury should miss less then a month after leaving his Saturday start with the injury.
According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino said that it was his “understanding of the MRI is that he had a mid-biceps strain, no structural damage.”
John Lackey was one start into his return from Tommy John surgery before he re-injured himself. Fortunately, the injury was not to the elbow. Even more fortunate was the fact that while it is a biceps strain, Lackey does not have a tear. However, the 34-year old will have to spend some time on the DL. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe had the news.

John Lackey, who the left Saturday's game in Toronto with a bicep injury, has been placed on the 15-Day DL. This injury is a really odd situation since no tear had shown up in his MRI.
