BOSTON -- Wondering why Dan Wheeler hasn't pitched for the Red Sox since Sept. 7? The righty reliever has been dealing with forearm stiffness.

"He had some forearm stiffness," said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. "We tried to stay away from him ... well we did stay away from him for a few days. He started to, I think, come through, and hopefully you'll see him in a game pretty soon."

Is Monday's doubleheader too soon?

"Probably," Francona said. "We'll see how he feels."
