John Lackey leaves first start since 2011 with right biceps strain
Red Sox right-hander John Lackey left Saturday's start with a right biceps strain. He was making his first start since September 2011 after having Tommy John surgery.
Red Sox right-hander John Lackey left Saturday's start against the Blue Jays with what the team says is a right biceps strain. He was making his first start since September 2011 after having Tommy John surgery. Here's the play in question:
Lackey, 34, left the game immediately with his right arm hanging by his side. He was in obvious pain and grabbing at his elbow/bicep. Replays showed him flexing his arm a few pitches earlier.
Before the injury, Lackey had allowed two runs on five hits while striking out eight in 4 1/3 innings. He'd thrown 76 pitches.
A strain is a tear by definition, but the team has yet to release any details about the severity of the injury.
