Bailey (lat strain) on the mend

By Joe McDonald

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey, who is dealing with a mild lat strain, played long toss at 200 feet on Wednesday and said he felt good.

If he continues to progress, it’s likely that he’ll throw a bullpen session either Thursday or Friday. He suffered the injury during his physical at the start of camp while participating in the vertical jump test.
