Boesch Working Hard to Make it Back Sooner Than Later

Already working on an accelerated rehab training program, Brennan Boesch is bringing the same strong work ethic to rehab that he brought to spring training.

On a dive to make a shoestring catch, Brennan fractured his wrist, cutting short an outstanding spring training. When he went down, Boesch led the Red Sox in At Bats, showing what he could do with regular playing time, hitting .303, with 5 doubles, a home run, slugging .545, OPS .840.

The wrist injury has a straightforward 8 to 10 weeks recovery, which should put Boesch back in the batter’s box before the first of June. “It was a freak thing that can happen when you lay out for a ball,” Boesch said, “but my pitchers and teammates know that I’m going to go all out, 110%, all the time. And that’s what I’m going to do with workouts and rehab over the next month.” So how has his first week of rehab training been? “The Red Sox have been great and supportive,” Boesch replied, “first class all the way, from top management, trainers, coaches, and staff, all have my sincere thanks.”
