Lackey, Jenks continue to make progress

BOSTON -- Terry Francona had brief updates on the rehab of a pair of his ailing pitchers before Sunday's series finale against the Cubs.

John Lackey (elbow) threw again on flat ground Sunday without any issues and will play catch Monday in Cleveland, where the team will open a seven-game trip. Francona said he expects Lackey to throw a side session on Tuesday. He has been on the disabled list since May 16.

Bobby Jenks (oblique), who has been on the DL since May 5, also is progressing. He is expected to throw a side session Monday in Cleveland.
