Everything went well, and Jenks is now on track for a Minor League rehab stint, which will start Saturday. Because of a developing storm, the Red Sox are keeping their options open on a venue for Jenks.
"Yeah, he did well," said manager Terry Francona. "They'll get it all figured out, but it will be Saturday. This will give him a couple of days to kind of travel. He's been getting after it pretty good. That will give him a couple of days to rejuvenate and then he'll pitch an inning."
Rosters can expand to 40 players Sept. 1, and while that might be a little quick for Jenks to re-join the Red Sox, Francona said the righty could be close to that day.
