Farrell Describes Flu-Ridden Red Sox As 'Bit Like A M*A*S*H Unit'

Saturday, Rodriguez took a 4-1 loss against the Detroit Tigers his first start of the 2017 season and signs showed that some of the inconsistencies he had in 2016 were still there. The 26-year-old experienced swelling and stiffness the following day and an MRI exam revealed inflammation on the outside of the knee capsule and the sprained ligament. Meanwhile, Boston hopes shortstop Xander Bogaerts can make his return from the bereavement list on Monday.

Beyond that, Pomeranz hasn't been the pitcher the Red Sox thought they were getting when they picked him from the Padres last July. He was set to head back to Boston for further examination. But the plans changed when Bradley's knee stiffened and swelled up overnight.

Sox manager John Farrell told reporters after Monday's game in Detroit that the team is hopeful it will only be a 10-day stint. "I feel a lot better", he said Sunday. He walked off the field under his own power and said he "absolutely" would be able to play Sunday, joking that his legs can hold up under anything because "I'm built like Secretariat".

The Red Sox passed the flu around their clubhouse. Rightfielder Mookie Betts and designated hitter Hanley Ramirez have already missed three games each due to the flu, and reliever Robbie Ross remains out with the same illness.
