Injections for Foulke
Here's the scoop on Keith Foulke as we know it. The reason he's been held back in spring training is because he's been undergoing two weeks of "injections" to his knees.
This was confirmed by Foulke's agent Dan Horwitz, who would not explain what was in the injections due to confidentiality issues, though he said they were not cortisone. Foulke had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in July and on his right knee after last season.
Foulke threw off flat ground for about 10 minutes today and showed decent velocity. He was watched by a member of the Sox training staff the whole time. At the end of the session, Foulke was showing the trainer his push-off leg, and then went off into the trainerís room while the rest of the pitchers and positional players worked out.
