Andrew Bailey Pitches on Back-to-Back Days in Pawtucket, Could Be in Boston Soon (Video)

Andrew Bailey's first three major league seasons couldn't have gone much better. He was Rookie of the Year in 2009 with the A's and his sophomore campaign was just as good, as he posted a 1.47 ERA and 0.96 ERA in 47 appearances.

All told, he had 75 saves in three seasons in Oakland before the Red Sox swung a deal for him to be their new closer in December. But Bailey's tenure in Boston has been marked by frustration, as the righty still hasn't appeared in a game for the Red Sox after undergoing thumb surgery in April.

It looks like Bailey may finally be on the right track, however, after pitching on back-to-back days for Triple-A Pawtucket. The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham joined NESN's Dale Arnold to discuss Bailey's status on Thursday's Red Sox Gameday LIVE, presented by UNO.

Check out the video of their conversation above.
