MLB Injury News:
Boston Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias exited last night’s
contest against the Toronto Blue Jays in the third inning after being hit on
the arm by a pitch. The injury has been diagnosed as a right arm contusion, and
the Red Sox are considering him as day-to-day, according to Ricky Doyle of NESN.
Iglesias was hit in the arm by a 93 mph fastball from Blue
Jays’ starter Josh Johnson. He was in obvious pain, but still manned the field
in the third inning. While he was able to make it through three frames, he was
lifted soon after for a pinch hitter.
At this point it’s not clear how much time, if any, Iglesias
will be forced to miss as a result of the injury. He was replaced by Pedro
Ciriaco last night, and Stephen Drew is making his way back from a concussion
injury. If Iglesias is forced to miss time this weekend, Ciriaco will replace
him at short. Drew is expected back on Monday to take over the role as the team’s
regular at the position.

highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as
satisfying as a good morning dump.
If John Lackey is going to be sidelined for any period of time -- or even for just one start -- it seems likely that the club will use Alfredo Aceves as his replacement in the starting rotation.
In his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery, the Red Sox and John Lackey got a scare. He pitched 4 1/3 innings before throwing a pitch and grabbing his arm in obvious pain. Lackey had to leave the game after the pitch, and there was some immediate concern that the injury could be related to elbow. Fortunately, it was his biceps, but the injury is still concerning...
The Red Sox have exceeded expectations through their first four games, winning three against their division rivals, the Yankees and Blue Jays. While the team as a whole seems to be clicking, closer Joel Hanrahan has stood out from the pack.
Hanrahan has proven to be worth the package Boston gave up for the longtime National League reliever — Jerry Sands, Stolmy Pimentel, Ivan DeJesus...
One of the many great things about baseball is that on any given day it is practically impossible not to find at least one amazing play. With so many games being played the odds are heavily in favor of greatness being exhibited somewhere.
Sunday that greatness was in evidence in Toronto when Boston Red Sox third baseman found the sweet spot not once...not twice...but three times...
You hate to see this happen after John Lackey worked so hard to return from Tommy John surgery.
Lackey threw a 2-2 pitch to Jose Reyes and immediately clutched his right bicep. Lackey left the mound in a lot of pain with his arm dangling. Lackey appeared to tweak his arm on the previous pitch.
It was Lackey’s first start since missing the entire 2012 season with Tommy John surgery...
Will Middlebrooks had himself a ballgame with three home runs and Jon Lester was outstanding on the mound as the Boston Red Sox went on to a 13-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

John Lackey left with a strained biceps in his first start since September 2011, grabbing his right arm in pain and coming out in the fifth inning Saturday as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0.
Lackey (0-1) missed last season following elbow ligament-replacement surgery in November 2011. He allowed a two-run homer to J.P. Arencibia in the fourth, and then clutched...
The Red Sox slammed 6 home runs - 3 of them by 3rd baseman Will Middlebrooks (pictured) - and received outstanding pitching from Jon Lester as they routed the Blue Jays 13-0 at the Rogers Centre. With the win, the Red Sox finished the road trip 4-2 taking 2 of 3 from the Yankees in New York and 3 of 4 from the Blue Jays.Boston rapped out 15 hits including 4 by Middlebrooks who...
It's hard to believe that in December in 2009 John Lackey was a desired commodity. The Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, and Pittsburgh Pirates, were all interested in Lackey.
Lackey had been the Angels ace and was one of six pitchers that won at least eleven games from 2004-2009. Baseball Prospectus said that, "Lackey stands alone as...

John Farrell and the Boston Red Sox weren't fazed by a hostile reception from Toronto's fans. Instead, they turned all the boos into a boost of energy.

A packed house of 45,328 let Farrell have it...
