Spinal Procedure For Jenks

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks has undergone a second spinal decompression procedure that could delay the start of his spring training

The Red Sox confirmed the procedure on Thursday.

Jenks, 30, is in the second year of a two-year, $20-million contract. He appeared in just 19 games last season with lingering back pain.

The procedure was first reported by the Boston Globe, which said the normal recovery time is eight weeks. Spring training begins for pitchers and catchers on Feb. 19.
