Sox happy with Jenks' outing

May, 27, 2011
DETROIT -- Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks, on the disabled list since May 5 with what the club called a strained right biceps, pitched a scoreless inning in Pawtucket on Friday night, and manager Terry Francona said he received a positive report on the proceedings.

"Everything felt real good,'' Francona said of Jenks. "The biceps felt good. He threw two-seamers, four-seamers, some changeups. It sounded like everything was real positive.''

Providence Journal reporter Brian MacPherson, who was at the PawSox game, said that Jenks registered 95 miles an hour on the radar gun there.

Jenks is scheduled to pitch again Sunday in Pawtucket and could be headed back to Boston in time to face his former team, the Chicago White Sox, who arrive in town for a three-game set that begins Monday.
