    A Penny for your Sox

    Brad Penny cleared the first hurdle in his return to a Major League start. This comes after he threw to teammates for batting practice for the first time in spring training. Penny feels the light 30 pitch session on Monday helped him both mentally and physically.The 2008 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers was cut short by shoulder problems, will they return? Theo signed him as a free agent in order to work side by side with Smoltz to hopefully equal the efforts of what Burnett might have brought.

    Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell said Penny would have two days off between batting practice sessions instead of the one day off for most pitchers. But he said that barring a setback, Penny will be ready for the start of the regular season. He’s scheduled for his first spring training start on March 5. Preseason ball starts in 2 days!
