Red Sox | John Farrell weighing future of bullpen

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters in his pregame conference Tuesday, April 22, that it was premature to declare whether Joel Hanrahan (hamstring) would return to closing after his activation from the disabled list. Farrell, however, added that Hanrahan would be added "to the bullpen that's in place right now" and noted interim stopper Andrew Bailey's 2013 performance and history as a closer, which will be considered when deciding on who takes the reins.

Fantasy Tip: Skip's quote about adding Hanrahan to what's in place now might hint that Bailey would keep the closer job when everyone is healthy. He pointed to Bailey's aggressive pitching this year, which has to sit well given Hanrahan's struggles. Hold onto both arms as we await the decision.
