When Joel Hanrahan returns from the disabled list from a sore hamstring the Red Sox are expected to return him to the closers role.
Hanrahan’s return to the closers role is expected says Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, a move that could come as soon as Tuesday. Hanrahan is tentatively scheduled to pitch one inning at Triple-A on Sunday.
During Hanrahan’s time away from the team Andrew Bailey has served as the Red Sox closer. Bailey put together a good showing by converting five of six chances. In 12 appearances this year Bailey has a 1.59 ERA.
er Abraham of the Boston Globe writes that “it is expected” that Joel Hanrahan (hamstring) will return to the ninth inning when he is activated from the disabled list.
