TORONTO -- Red Sox RHP John Lackey, who has not pitched this season following elbow surgery last year, felt good after throwing 25 pitches in a live batting practice session Thursday. Lackey was scheduled to throw on flat ground Friday and might throw another live BP before the end of Boston's four-game series at Tampa Bay next week, or possibly once the Red Sox return to Fenway for their final homestand of the season.

The short-term target remains the chance to pitch in a game situation at Instructional League, probably a two-inning stint, manager Bobby Valentine said.

"I think it would be good for him. That's what his plan has been all summer."
