Boston Red Sox RP Joel Hanrahan (forearm) strained his right forearm Monday, May 6, and he'll undergo an MRI exam Tuesday, May 7. "I felt like I threw the pitch and felt a little pull, like my forearm went a little bit with the ball. I felt like I could still throw the ball all right. I was like, 'All right, maybe that stretched it out a little bit, see what happens,' but eventually I got to the point where I tried to make a pickoff (throw) to first, and the ball barely got there. I threw one more, and I just couldn't take it anymore," he said. Hanrahan has a 9.82 ERA in nine appearances this year.
