Joel Hanrahan: Day-To-Day With Hamstring Issue
Update: Hanrahan is dealing with a right hamstring issue and is considered day-to-day, the Boston Globe reports.

Recommendation: Manager John Farrell indicated the issue has affected Hanrahan's mechanics and location, which was apparent when he was removed from Saturday's game after walking the first two batters he faced. The injury obviously is problematic in such a high-pressure role as closer, so expect the Red Sox to use Andrew Bailey in the ninth inning as long as Hanrahan remains inhibited, which could last a couple of days. A stint on the DL is not forthcoming at this point, though it's not entirely out of the question, either.
