5:10 p.m.: Joel Hanrahan visited Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his throwing arm on Friday. The right-hander is dealing with an injury to his flexor muscle tendon, and he’ll be out at least two months after being transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Thursday. There is a possibility that Hanrahan’s season is over, but manager John Farrell said that no decision has been made on what course the reliever will take. Hanrahan could decide to go a conservative route, which would involve rest and rehab, in an effort to pitch again this season, or he could decide that season-ending surgery is the best option.

Red Sox (21-14) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Daniel Nava, LF Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Will Middlebr...
