After leaving his first start with tightness in his right biceps and being placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier this week, Red Sox pitcher John Lackey will begin a throwing program Tuesday, said manager John Farrell.
“The symptoms have subsided,” Farrell said. “So any kind of range of motion that he’s going through or just a couple days where he felt a little bit of tightness in that bicep, that’s gone. So we’ll initiate that tomorrow.
Lackey lasted just 4.1 innings in his first start of the season April 6 against the Toronto Blue Jays before grabbing his injured arm.
