Junichi Tazawa Visiting Dr. James Andrews

Everybody freak out! The Red Sox have announced that Junichi Tazawa is in Alabama to see renowned and feared orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews for a right elbow examination.

While trips to Dr. Andrews are never good news, they do not guarantee an injury. Josh Beckett visited Andrews a little under a week before he started his next game in 2008, for instance.

Tazawa had been ineffective in 7 innings for the Sox in spring training, allowing 8 runs on 10 hits, including 5 homers.
