BRADENTON, Fla. — Red Sox manager John Farrell said Jake Peavy is day-to-day after cutting the index finger on his left hand.
“We’ll take our guidance from the medical staff as to when he can first initiate some throwing,” Farrell said before the Red Sox played the Pirates. “I do know we have to be careful about how much he sweats. We just have to be cautious with any potential infection that might get in there. That’s kind of what we’re gauging right now.”
Farrell didn’t know how many stitches Peavy had.
“I do know that they had to go in and make sure it was irrigated and cleaned out and not allow any potential infection to take place,” he said. “How that wound was left — whether it was left open to continue to heal — those details I’m not exactly clear on.”
• Ryan Lavarnway has made quicker progression at first base than the team expected. “His early work has been so positive, we get an opportunity to take a look at it here in camp and we’re doing just that,” Farrell said.
