Joel Hanrahan: (Hamstring) Rehab Stint On Tap Staff

Update: Hanrahan (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday at Triple-A Pawtucket, the Boston Herald reports.

Recommendation: Hanrahan is progressing well through his rehab, but it doesn't appear as if he'll assume closing duties when he does eventually return to the Red Sox. In his stead, Andrew Bailey has tallied four saves in five chances to go with a 3.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 10 strikeouts in six innings. Manager John Farrell is unlikely to address the issue until Hanrahan is full healthy and ready to join the bullpen.
