Published:
WASHINGTON — Boston Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey will have surgery on his right thumb that could sideline him for a significant portion of the season.
After an exhibition game Tuesday against the Washington Nationals, the Red Sox said their new closer was examined a day earlier in Boston by Drs. Mark Belsky and Matthew Leibman, then was examined again Tuesday in Cleveland by Dr. Thomas Graham.
The Red Sox said "it was determined that Andrew should undergo surgery to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb."
