Andrew Bailey will finally see what’s wrong with his sore biceps on Monday morning when he goes in for an MRI.
The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham said on Red Sox Gameday Live that the test is mostly for Bailey’s peace of mind so he knows what he’s dealing with. Acquiring Joel Hanrahan has looked to be a smart decision so far this season, as has keeping Bailey despite trading for the former Pirates closer.
Both players have experienced injury issues, but the team has been able to juggle their closers effectively. The key is to get both players healthy so Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa can limit their innings.
Watch the video above to hear Abraham and NESN’s Tom Caron discuss the Red Sox’ closer situation.
