John Lackey of the Boston Red Sox made his season debut on Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays. His outing was cut short in the 5th inning when he hurt his throwing arm on a wild pitch. According to NESN’s Jenny Dell, Lackey suffered a right bicep strain, which has to be a relief to everyone. Lackey went 4.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits while striking out 8.
