Red Sox | Joel Hanrahan feeling good

Boston Red Sox RP Joel Hanrahan (hamstring) was pain-free during his bullpen session Monday, April 22, and he hopes he can return to the team after one or two outings in a minor league game. "Felt good," said Hanrahan, who threw mostly fastballs and felt no pain in his leg. "It's getting better. Everything is feeling pretty good. I don't feel it right now." Manager John Farrell said Hanrahan is working on mechanical adjustments to help him take some of the stress off his leg. "Subconsciously it's in there and he felt something," said Farrell. "It's going to disrupt his focus on pitch to pitch. Some of things that he's working are to hopefully take some of the stress off that leg. He uses a pretty pronounced drop-and-drive approach. Not that we're looking to revamp his delivery, but to adjust to take some of the pressure off that hamstring."

Fantasy Tip: Andrew Bailey is doing just fine in the closer role in Hanrahan's absence, so expect that to continue even when Hanrahan returns.
