Red Sox notebook

No recourse with Chris Carpenter

Injured reliever passed physicals

FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Red Sox had complete access to Chris Carpenter’s medical records, and the pitcher passed both his Cubs physical and Red Sox physical after he was sent to Boston as compensation for Theo Epstein, a major league source familiar with the situation said Thursday.

Carpenter had surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow Thursday and will be out indefinitely.
