Foulke felt stiffness in his back on Friday and the Boston Red Sox decided to keep him on the disabled list.
Foulke continued his rehab assignment in Triple-A Pawtucket after being put on the disabled by the Boston Red Sox on June 12 with elbow tendinitis. The team is hoping to have him rejoin the team on Friday.
Foulke was put on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, retroactive to Monday, with right elbow tendinitis. The Boston Red Sox reliever is 2-1 with a 5.63 ERA in 29 appearances this season.
Foulke struck out the side against Triple-A Ottawa in his spring debut Friday, worked another 1-2-3 inning Saturday and a scoreless frame for the Red Sox on Monday. The Boston closer seems to be progressing well from surgery on both knees over the last year.
Foulke, who is rehabbing from offseason knee surgery, is expected to work a minor league game on Friday. If all goes well, the Boston closer could face major league hitters in game action Saturday. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last July and had his right knee repaired over the winter.
Foulke threw 12 of his 21 pitches for strikes during a scoreless inning of a simulated game on Saturday. Foulke will throw again Sunday, when he is expected to receive a third injection of a joint lubricant. Foulke should make his spring training debut later in the week.
Foulke threw batting practice for the first time this spring on Friday, several days after receiving injections of a joint lubricant in both knees. The injections will be given in a series of three, with the next ones planned for Saturday. The process could be repeated during the season if necessary. The Boston closer is coming off arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on July 7 and on his right knee after the season.
Foulke returned to Boston on Thursday for an examination of the left knee that has been problematic all season and required surgery on July 7. An ESPN report is saying that the Red Sox' closer, who was so critical to the team's championship success a year ago, is done for the season.
Although he was touched for a couple of runs and four hits at short-season Class-A Lowell on Wednesday, Foulke was activated from the disabled list Thursday by the Boston Red Sox. The Boston closer underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on July 7, and he'll be making his first major league appearance since the Fourth of July.
Foulke was hit on the elbow by a line drive while throwing a simulated game on Friday. But the reliever was not seriously injured, and is scheduled to throw again on Tuesday. If all goes well, the reliever could soon begin a minor league rehab stint.
Foulke will throw batting practice today, and could begin a minor league rehab assignment as early as next week if all goes well.
Foulke threw off a mound Wednesday for the second time since undergoing surgery on his left knee in early July. The Red Sox' closer said his second session went much better than his first, as there was a crispness to his offerings Wednesday. His third mound session has been pushed back to Saturday, as Foulke will throw off flat ground on Friday. His status will be assessed over the weekend.
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week, Foulke was scheduled for his first three throwing sessions since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on July 7. After his final one on Friday, Foulke will be evaluated again to decide if he needs to go on a minor league rehab assignment before returning to the Red Sox' bullpen.
The Boston Red Sox placed Foulke on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a left knee injury. On Thursday, the Red Sox' closer will undergo arthroscopic surgery in Boston. More should be known about the length of Foulke's rehab following Thursday's procedure. The struggling closer is 5-5 with 15 saves in 19 chances and a 6.23 ERA.

In what has been a difficult season for Boston's closer, Foulke has been roughed up in two of his last three outings. On Monday, he entered in the ninth inning to protect a 5-4 Red Sox lead and allowed a Michael Young triple, an RBI double from Mark Teixeira and Kevin Mench's game-winning single while retiring only one batter.
Foulke will leave the Red Sox and return to Boston to determine if a knee problem is the cause of his struggles this season. The closer will have MRI exams performed on both knees to see if they have played a role in his 2005 performance. He is 5-5 with 15 saves in 19 chances and a 6.23 ERA after a stellar 2004 campaign.
