Andrew Bailey was off to a great start this season prior to landing on the disabled list earlier this month with right biceps inflammation, but the Red Sox are hoping the issue is behind him.
According to Evan Drellich of MassLive.com, Bailey had no issues during a bullpen session this afternoon and is slated to make a minor league rehab appearance Saturday with Triple-A Pawtucket. If all goes well, he’s expected to be activated for Monday’s series opener against the White Sox in Chicago.
Bailey will get the closer role back from Junichi Tazawa as soon as he rejoins the club, but Farrell wants there to be an open line of communication about his health moving forward.
“The one thing we spoke about at length was to be sure that we get a true read on how he feels after each outing and to balance recovery time and his availability,” Farrell said.
Bailey had a 1.46 ERA, five saves and 20/4 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings prior to the injury. He hasn’t thrown more than 49 innings in a season since his rookie season in 2009.
