Red Sox pitcher shut down after soreness following rehab start

The Boston Red Sox looked like they were set to have the last piece of their starting rotation from the beginning of the year back from injury, but a setback appears to be preventing that reality.

According to MassLive’s Chris Cotillo, Red Sox pitcher Garrett Whitlock felt soreness in his elbow after a solid rehab start for Triple-A Worcester. He was set to be activated next week, but he’ll now return to Boston for testing.

Whitlock threw 4 2/3 innings for Worcester, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out five on Wednesday.

A strained oblique originally landed Whitlock on the injured list back in April, but this could be much more serious depending on how the imaging comes out.
