Out since May 5 with a strained triceps, Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks threw a problem-free bullpen session yesterday and Ian Browne of MLB.com reports that he could be activated from the disabled list as soon as this weekend.

After throwing a 25-pitch session Jenks said:

Everything felt great today. Biceps is back to where it was before a few weeks ago. Right now, everything’s looking good.

Jenks indicated that he’d prefer to skip a minor-league rehab assignment, but given his 9.35 ERA prior to the injury it might not be the worst idea to let him get some minor-league hitters out before rejoining the Red Sox’s bullpen. If nothing else the guys in Pawtucket could tell stories for the rest of their lives about seeing Jenks’ goatee in person.

      looks like Frank Mir’s (UFC) chin-vag, but blonde. outside of Dennis Rodman, no man should attempt the platinum blonde look.

        When Bobby first grew the “thing” in Chicago, the rumor was that he didn’t really grow it, but paid strippers from his favorite “Gentleman’s Club” for their shaved pubic hair. When he finally got enough of it, he bleached it all to get a uniform color and then fashioned into that “thing” on the bottom of his chinny, chin, chin!

    A large part of the reason that the White Sox let Bobby Stinks walk as a free agent (while re-signing AJ Pierczinski and Paul Konerko), had to do with Jenks now well chronicled off the field (booze), and temperament problems. Boston, you can have him!

      Bobby Stinks… Boston’s $6.5M/year mop up man!

      That role he’ll be good in though, because during the offseason he’s used to hearing his name called over the intercom: “Bobby, clean up on aisle 5… and bring a mop and a bucket!”.

    As long as he doesnt pitch like a goat

    Please God no. Do not let this man near a mound ever again. He should not be trusted with a ten run lead.

      ‘zaps; he was never injured. Its a ploy see to distract the common man from the excesses of The Man. Yeah you thought Jenks was injured eh? Hell no, brah. Bobby on special ops to limit personal freedoms and cover for his federal overlords as they systematically dismantle your personal freedom. His nefarious mission over he’s back to pitch. Or whatever it is he does.

    Jinx sorta looks like a hot dog in a microwave, just before the casing blows apart from overheating.

    Why didn’t they order him to enroll in Jenny Craig while he was on the DL.
