Lackey set to begin throwing program
BOSTON -- Red Sox right-hander John Lackey is feeling better by the day and will start a throwing program on Tuesday that could have him back on the mound fairly soon.
When Lackey initially injured his right biceps on April 6 in Toronto, it looked like he could be out a while.
But if things continue to progress like they have been, Lackey could return right around the time he is eligible to come off the disabled list, which is April 22.
"He's actually going to begin a throwing program tomorrow," said Red Sox manager John Farrell on Monday. "His symptoms have subsided, so any kind of range of motion that he's going through, where just a couple days ago he felt a little bit of tightness, that is gone. So we'll initiate that tomorrow."
