Andrew Bailey has that closer mentality when it comes to pitching. He didn’t want to have any rehab outings after recovering from a biceps strain. He wanted to get sent right back into the fires of major league baseball.
John Farrell and the Red Sox overruled him on that, however, instead choosing to send the closer to Triple-A Pawtucket for one game on Satuday to make sure that he’s fully ready to take back the reins in the back end of the Boston bullpen. Bailey, to his credit, came around on the idea and is now promising NESN’s Jenny Dell that he’ll be “ready to go” in the big leagues come Monday.
