ST. PETERSBURG -- Right-handed reliever Bobby Jenks, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list June 8 due to left back tightness, is still trying to work his way back from the injury.
But it could take longer than expected, as the Red Sox are taking a very cautious approach. Manager Terry Francona said Jenks is "probably" going to be out for more than the 15 days.
"He assured us he won't do too much, and we don't want any setbacks with this," Francona said. "I think he's on board with that. He's getting pretty logical about it."
