John Lackey Suffers Injury In First Outing Of The Season

Written by 

 John Lackey leaves yesterday's game with a strained right biceps

  In his first start since he had his elbow surgically repaired a year and a half ago, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher John Lackey left yesterday's early season contest against the Toronto Blue Jays with what is being called a biceps strain. 

  Lackey had worked extremely hard to get back on the mound this season including getting into better shape physically, dropping over 40 lbs in the off-season. This was due to be a bounce-back season for Lackey, as he has never lived up to his inflated five year, $82.5 million contract. 

 In the fifth inning, Lackey threw a pitch to Jose Reyes that ended up in the dirt and his right arm awkwardly flailed around to the left side of his back and he immediately hopped around in pain while his arm hung at his side. Red Sox manager John Farrell came rushing out of the dugout with trainer Rick Jameyson. 

 Lackey did speak to the media after the game saying that the injury "scared the crap out of him". His worst fear is having to go through the recovery process that he has endured in the last 18 months. 

 Lackey was pitching well in his first outing, having thrown 76 pitches in his 4 1/3 innings. Fifty of those pitches were for strikes and his velocity was very good at 94 MPH. He gave up two runs on five hits and struck out eight while his only walk was the one that Jose Reyes earned on Lackey's final pitch. 

 Lackey's injury was assessed in the training room in Toronto and it was determined that he did not have a rupture although he did return to Boston to have an MRI to be sure. 

 More on Lackey's injury as it becomes available on CLNSRadio.com as well as on Twitter @CLNSRedSox.
