6/19 Red Sox Injury Report

June 19th 2011 14:09
1. Carl Crawford

The star left fielder was put on the disabled list with a Grade 1 strain on his left hamstring. The training staff didn't want to take any risks with a player of his caliber, but I wish they didn't go this far to put him on the DL.

2. Bobby Jenks

Jenks threw 45 pitches off flat ground, and he has back tightness. He won't be back immediately after the 15 days that have transpired since the injury. I think he'll be back just before the month ends.

He assured us that he wont do too much, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. We dont want any setbacks with this. I think hes on board with that. Hes being pretty logical about it.


3. Jed Lowrie

Lowrie injured his left shoulder, and he is scheduled to take an MRI. The injury is very recent, and it seems like deja vu with the whole Jacoby Ellsbury thing last year. He tried to play through the pain, but he couldn't and said that he felt it pop out or something. The good thing is that the first MRI showed no structural damage, but there needs to be a second MRI to confirm everything.

4. Rich Hill

Hill is always injured, so it wasn't a surprise to see him land there on the 2nd of June. Dr. James Andrews said that the injury has nothing to do with Hill's new sidearm delivery. The injury? Yup, Tommy John. It's another crushing setback for a pitcher who always seems to get injured.

5. Daisuke Matsuzaka

This is another guy who had Tommy John surgery, and he is another guy- Lowrie's the other- who was seen by Dr. Lewis Yocum. Will Matsuzaka ever get a break?

6. Junichi Tazawa

He has made progress in his minor league rehab assignments after having Tommy John surgery last year. His offspeed stuff has gotten better, but his velocity needs to get back to where it was.


7. Franklin Morales

Morales pitched his third rehab game in AAA, and he will get some time off. The goal is to have him throw 30 pitches in his next outing. His velocity is at 92 miles per hour right now, but it still needs to climb back up to where it was.
Always Injured
