John Lackey Reportedly Taking Physical For The Red Sox

The Red Sox may not be able to keep Jason Bay, so they’ve moved on to Angels’ pitcher John Lackey. And from all indications, they may be in the driver’s seat to land him.

John Lackey traveled to Boston for a physical exam Monday, and a baseball source said the Red Sox are making progress toward an agreement with the free agent right-hander.

A source said that it is “not likely” that an agreement would be in place or an announcement would be made by the end of Monday.

Typically, players undergo physical exams as the final step in an agreement, but there are no indications precisely where the Red Sox are in the process with Lackey and his agent, Steve Hilliard.

UPDATE: Looks like it’s official.
