Boston Red Sox RP Matt Thornton (oblique) is starting to feel better after leaving his appearance Sunday, Aug. 4, due to a strained right oblique.

Boston Red Sox RP Andrew Bailey (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday, July 24, to fix a torn capsule, damage to his labrum and a strain of one of the muscles of his rotator cuff. The estimated recovery time is 12 months.
Fantasy Tip: Bailey's injury woes continue to affect his fantasy value. Koji Uehara doesn't really have anyone challenging him for save chances anytime soon, unless the BoSox go out and acquire another bullpen contributor before the trade deadline. Junichi Tazawa and Matt Thornton become even more important in setup roles now.
