Farrell says Lackey’s initial diagnosis is hopeful

TORONTO — Here's what John Farrell had to say about John Lackey:

"Strained right bicep. Felt kind of a cramping sensation. Obviously we took him out immediately. But once he was in the clubhouse here, he iced it down [and] that cramping went away. The strength test, at least in the training room, showed to be positive in terms of full strength. But we're going to get him back [to Boston] and get a full exam, likely tomorrow."
