The Boston Red Sox began the season with newly-acquired right-hander Joel Hanrahan manning the closer role. He's now on the disabled list and last year's original option in the ninth inning, Andrew Bailey, has taken over the job. He failed Monday, but earned the save Wednesday and manager John Farrell told the media that he's not ready to guarantee Hanrahan returns to the role once he's healthy.
