Red Sox | Joel Hanrahan throws off mound

Boston Red Sox RP Joel Hanrahan (hamstring) threw off a mound for the first time Monday, April 22, since going on the disabled list. He'll throw another bullpen session Wednesday, April 24, and then go on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Hanrahan isn't guaranteed to be given the closer's role back when he returns from the DL. Andrew Bailey has been pitching well and has experience in the role, so John Farrell won't be pressured to go away from Bailey unless he's not getting it done. Hanrahan shouldn't be dropped just yet, but he could be sitting in a setup role for some time.
