Jeremy Hermida is recovering from his hamstring injury. Terry Francona commented on it today:
"I don't know how realistic playing tomorrow is or not," said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. "I think very realistic is Friday. Again, that doesn't mean he won't play tomorrow. I don't know if realistic is the right word. I don't know if he would [play Thursday]. But I think Friday is very realistic."
The team is taking it slow with Tazawa and has not made a decision about surgery.
Dice-K will pitch in relief of Wakefield in D.C. on Saturday and then go on a rehab assignment in the minors before joining the Red Sox in the regular season.
