Carson Smith Throws Twenty Pitches In Workout Today

Well, it's something. Carson Smith—thirteen months out from Tommy John surgery—worked out today in New York. The reliever threw twenty pitches with "stand-in" hitters Dustin Pedroia and Andrew Benintendi watching in the batter's box. The right-hander—who was slated to be the "set-up" guy in the 8th inning for closer Craig Kimbrelmay be ready to go on a minor-league rehab assignment soon. Don't hold your breath.
