Okajima is Hurt

Nothing like giving up a game winning grand slam to help find an injury. Hideki Okajima is going to be shut down for a few games by the Sox because of a sore left wrist.

Okajima also admitted to the Globe that he does not like pitching with runners on base: "Little bit uncomfortable. All the coaches, manager know I am not successful with a runner behind [me]. So why use me?"

The injury is not serious enough to send him to the DL but it does limit the options the Red Sox have in the bullpen. They are going to need to get some quality starts the next few days and hope Hansen or Delcarmen can deliver before it gets to Papelbon.

I always find great info on your site! Interesting that Oki admitted he does not like inheriting runners! Not good that he's unavailable.

P.S. they switched the game times on you - you might want to update the game schedule post.
