BOSTON -- Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan is contemplating season-ending surgery after being examined Friday by orthopedist James Andrews. An MRI taken during the visit Friday showed flexor tendon damage in the right forearm, Boston manager John Farrell said. If an operation is performed, Hanrahan would miss the rest of the season and face the possibility of Tommy John surgery if damage is found to the ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow. Ligament damage has been ruled out "to a certain extent," Farrell said before Friday nights game against the Toronto Blue Jays, "but in situations such as these type, once they have the ability to open up the arm and look at it directly, then they can make a more clear decision at that time if, in fact, Tommy John is needed." Hanrahan could choose to rest and rehabilitate the injury but still would miss at least two months. He was transferred on Thursday from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list. "Everything that shows right now is its the flexor tendon" thats injured, Farrell said. He also said Hanrahan hasnt indicated when hell decide his course of treatment. "In situations like this, its not uncommon for the player to make the final decision," Farrell said. "Certainly, its his career, its his arm. Recommendations can be given through multiple opinions that hes already received and I think hes doing a very good job of getting his arms around it with the information gathered so that decision will become more clear-cut in Joels mind." Hanrahan went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday before Thursdays move. The Red Sox acquired Hanrahan last Dec. 26 in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was named an NL All-Star the past two seasons when he totalled 76 saves. But hes 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA and four saves in six opportunities this season. "Joel has talked about having some discomfort back in 2009," Farrell said. But he said that wasnt a concern when the trade was made because Hanrahan didnt miss time the next three years. "Ive got to believe (with) the number of years hes pitched (that the injury) is probably a cumulative effect," Farrell said, "and then, ultimately, as we saw on one pitch the other night." Hanrahan faced four batters in Bostons 6-5 win in 11 innings over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night. He retired Ryan Doumit on a fly to left field, gave up a tying homer to Brian Dozier, struck out Joe Mauer and walked Josh Willingham. Then he was replaced by Clayton Mortensen. Andrew Bailey, who became the closer when Hanrahan was on the disabled list from April 14-29 with a strained right hamstring, went on the 15-day DL on Monday with a strained right biceps. Bailey threw for the second straight day on Friday, from 105 feet, but Farrell said no timetable has been set for when hell throw from a mound. "Theres no date marked for his return," Farrell said, "but we still feel confident with the group that weve got in our pen right now." He said Junichi Tazawa will take over the closers role.

New York Jets Sam Darnold Jersey . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. DETROIT -- Torii Hunters day off came to an abrupt end in extra innings. That was fine with the Detroit outfielder -- especially once he was smiling and celebrating after hitting the winning single. Hunters line drive to left-centre field in the 12th inning gave the Tigers a 3-2 victory over the White Sox on Sunday, stretching Detroits winning streak to eight games and Chicagos losing streak to 10. Hunter was out of the starting lineup, but he entered in the 10th with the game tied. "I thought I had a day off, but when you come to the park, you enjoy the first couple innings. Once that fifth inning hits, you just go down to the tunnel and get yourself loose," Hunter said. "Thats the way youve got to approach it." Miguel Cabrera, who has been dealing with hip and abdominal problems, led off the Detroit 12th with a pinch-hit single. Matt Tuiasosopo ran for him and went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Austin Jackson. Hunters single off Dylan Axelrod (3-8) drove in the winning run. Bruce Rondon (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for his first career win. The Tigers have won 12 of 13, and take a three-game lead in the AL Central into a four-game series at second-place Cleveland. "The starting pitchers are having quality starts, and our bullpen is coming in and getting the job done," Hunter said. "Timely hitting, our defence looks good ... all cylinders are clicking right now. Were just going to ride that bike until the wheels fall off." Adam Dunn homered and had four hits for Chicago. Paul Konerko added a solo homer in the ninth for the White Sox to force extra innings. The White Sox have lost 10 straight for the first time since June of 1976. They were aggressive early on, and it ended up backfiring. With one out in the first, Alexei Ramirez left first base early, trying to steal second. Pitcher Rick Porcello eventually realized what was happening and stepped off the rubber, catching Ramirez in a rundown. The next three hitters reached base on two singles and a walk, but Chicago stranded them all and came out of the inning with no runs. "We had them on the ropes early, but youve got to push them across the plate if youre going to win," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. Detroitt had men on second and third with one out in the second, but Jose Iglesias struck out and Ramon Santiago hit a grounder to first.dddddddddddd Dunn put the White Sox ahead 1-0 with a majestic drive in the fourth. His 26th homer of the year cleared both levels of bushes behind the wall in centre field, disappearing into the ivy that also serves as a hitting backdrop at Comerica Park. Chicagos Andre Rienzo, making his second big league start, still hadnt allowed an earned run in the majors until the Tigers broke through in the seventh. Alex Avila hit an RBI double, and Santiago added a sacrifice fly to give Detroit a 2-1 lead. Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham made a terrific sliding catch with his back to the plate on Prince Fielders eighth-inning popup. That helped keep the White Sox within a run. Porcello allowed a run and eight hits in 7 2-3 innings. He struck out four and walked one. Reliever Drew Smyly allowed Konerkos homer in the ninth. Rienzo allowed two runs and four hits in six-plus innings. He struck out three and walked three. Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta -- who faces a possible suspension from Major League Baseballs drug investigation -- made a nice catch of Ramirezs soft liner in the 10th to start a double play. Cabrera, who like Hunter was not in the starting lineup, came to the plate to a huge ovation in the 12th. The sight of him being announced as a pinch-hitter is obviously rare. He grounded a single up the middle to start the winning rally. "Like he hasnt missed a beat," Tuiasosopo said. "Its incredible." NOTES: The Tigers optioned RHP Evan Reed to Triple-A Toledo and purchased the contract of RHP Jeremy Bonderman. ... Jacksons grounder up the middle in the sixth appeared to hit Rienzos throwing hand, but the Brazilian right-hander stayed in the game. ... Santiago, Detroits second baseman, stayed in the game after diving to his right to make a nice play on Conor Gillaspies grounder in the fourth. It initially looked like hed hurt his right leg. ...
