Found April 16, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters – including Julian Benbow of The Boston Globe – that right-handed starting pitcher John Lackey has been cleared to resume a throwing program. Farrell indicated that the symptoms Lackey was facing have now subsided. As a result, the right-hander has been cleared to resume throwing and is slated to begin his program today. Lackey has been sidelined since making his season debut for the Red Sox last week. He was forced to exit that initial start against the Toronto Blue Jays due to discomfort in his arm. The injury was later termed a biceps strain, and it ultimately landed Lackey on the disabled list. The veteran missed the entire 2012 season due to injury, and this certainly wasn’t how he envisioned beginning his ’13 campaign. However, because he’s resumed throwing he should be able to rejoin the Red Sox before too long, assuming he doesn’t face any setbacks. With Lackey sidelined, the Red Sox have moved swing man Alfredo Aceves from the bullpen and into the starting rotation to fill in.

The Theraputic Value of Sport

It’s still somewhat difficult to process what happened yesterday in the Boston marathon and believe it as real.
