The Red Sox may finally be getting lucky with injuries. J.D. Drew, who strained his right hamstring on Friday, could play against the Rockies on Tuesday night.
“From talking to the trainers, it’s actually pretty good,” manager Terry Francona said. “I hope Tuesday’s realistic. If it’s not, we won’t do it. But I think it’s probably realistic to think that it might work that he’d be able to play. The good news is I don’t think anybody remotely thinks it’s a DL.
“It’s a big outfield in Denver. But if he’s healthy to play, he’ll play.”
WEATHER UPDATE: The Sox canceled batting practice when a storm rolled through. But the skies have cleared, the gates are open and the Dodgers are on the field now. Looks like the game will start on time.
