Andrew Bailey: (Thumb) Nearing Return

Update: Bailey (thumb) gave up a run and three hits in one inning with Double-A Portland Sunday, the Red Sox's Official Website reports.

Recommendation: It took Bailey 27 pitches to make it through the inning, but he did strike out two batters, and his fastball hit 94 MPH. He will probably need a few more rehab appearances, but should be able to join the Red Sox within the next two weeks if there isn't a setback.
